This is the access road to California Park and the Hahns Peak Basin from the Southern Wyoming, Eastern Moffat County, and Northwestern Routt County directions---not the standard access road to Hahns Peak. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The best problems can be found near the intersection of Slater and Adams Creeks. This is not world class bouldering...if you are passing through the area, it is a fun roadside stop. There is nothing too much over V0 easy. Most of the limestone is fairly solid. The crag sticks out like a sore thumb as you reach the area, it is north of the road & creek and south of Shield Mountain. The area is an in open meadow...lots of wind and lots of sun.

Watch out for rattlesnakes among the rocks...lots of other mice, marmot, and such living along the rock and cliffs.

If you are passing through the area, this is a fun addition to the tour of Black Mountain and California Park...not a bouldering destination!!!!

Getting There 

Routt County Road 82, Forest Service Road 116 follows Slater Creek.

The best problems can be found near the intersection of Slater and Adams Creeks. The crag sticks out like a sore thumb as you reach the area, it is north of the road & creek and south of Shield Mountain. There are many possible routes to access Routt County Road 82 (due consider conditions and winter closures). There is NO cell phone service, and it is a very isolated area.

Featured Route For Slater Creek Problems
A solid squat/stand start on fractured limestone, the problem goes left to the arete of the formation. Fractures at frequent intervals in both horizontal and vertical runs make for lots of options for placement, along with some nice jugs....all lead to a clean top out and walk off in either direction
