The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The Seurat Area sits in the trees just South of the Bierstadt area, and so makes a fine choice on warmer days. This area is full of classic lines, but is known for its two desparate arete traverses (All Dogs Go To Evans & Silverback), and a classic lieback crack (Seurat).

In addition to these testpieces, there are a multitude of excellent moderates hidden in the trees uphill (east) from the Seurat Boulder.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for Area A. From The Bierstadt Area, continue Southwesterly and pick up the trail just past The Ladder. On the left is the overhanging arete of Random Progression. Head right around a large flat boulder, then after ~20 yds you will run smack into the North Face of the Pink Fink boulder, featuring Snow White V7 & Pink Fink. The towering highball Peasants Into Leaders is on the boulder just East of the Pink Fink boulder. Head west (right) around the Pink Fink boulder, and follow the trail towards the woods. Once in the woods the trail goes right past the East side of the Seurat Boulder.

Climb the obvious seam/finger crack on the east side of the Seurat Boulder. Start more or less standing and work up the crack on terrible foot smears and sidepulls to where the crack makes a dogleg and opens up. If you can climb cracks, this could feel pretty easy but it can be very frustrating....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

All Dogs Go To Evans climbs the severely overhanging arete, to the prow of the boulder, near the top of Seurat.  Rawhide begins up ADGTE, but turns the lip at the big jug under the roof, then follows the tricky slab to the top.

Silverback climbs this leaning arete, on the west side of the Seurat Boulder.  Apparently there is a stand-start version and a sit-down start version.  The trail in the background on the right leads to Area B.
