Candelaria's Crack 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : Rock Island II
This is a really nice overhanging finger crack that is only about 15-20 ft high. Really more of a boulder problem, but it is also a nice crack to practice some clean aid. You can downclimb to the left of the route. There is another rinky-dink "route" to the left with a single 1/4" bolt halfway up. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Great rock for an intermediate climbers trying to escape 5.8 routes. Easy to get to, can park 100 feet from the climbing area. Bolts for the 5.10 route.

Bolts? I haven't seen bolts here? There is one old bolt on an old 'aid' project, but I think that's it. Could someone provide more info?

I'm pretty sure Kevin was confusing this area with Rock Island I.
