Description 

Central area of Riggs' Hill. Tons of desert varnished sandstone boulders.

I am not familiar with some of the problems here and have designated those I can't locate in "The Cluster." This is a section of boulders left of the main right trail in the central area. I'll update it as I can and as information becomes available.

Getting There 

Park in the main circular parking lot at Riggs' Hill. Most of the good boulders are northeast of the parking lot.

Start on the right furthest side.Sit start on a crimp and a pinch, feet up high on a good rail down low. Fire up directly to a sidepull, or use a sloper out left then hit the sidepull. Anyways, work through the lockoff on the sidepull and go out left to the good pocket (maybe use a toe hook to get to the pocket). Drop into a crimp from here and connect/finish up on the project line that cruises straight up through the middle....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
