This is a nice boulder on a sunny day, it has shade and is right on the creek. The rock quality varies, but is pretty good once clean. A lot of boulders near the creek can be pretty sandy, but this one is good and has everything from crimps to slopers.
From US Hwy 50, follow CO-141 about 3.8 miles. Park at a large paved pulloff to right. From there, it is just a short walk straight downhill.

Depending on the time of year you go, this is a "deep" water bouldering spot in the desert. Start either matched on an obvious rail system or with a left hand on the side pull and right hand on the rail. Move to the right on slopers and crimps. When you traverse around the bend, start to move upward. The crux is right in the middle over 5 feet of water (at least when we went in the spring). ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
