The Black Hole Rock Climbing
Avoiding the summer heat at one of the problems in...
The Black Hole is on the hillside just north of town. Check out classics such as Helicopter and Cytogrinder. Also, any number of linkups can be made. For example, try linking up Tendonitis traverse with a problem up the black hole, or make your problem into a loop!
Park on the South side of Morrison Rd, in Morrison at the obvious pullouts. Head east down Morrison Rd. just past where guardrails begin on the north side. Now, head up the trail strait north and the black hole is at the top. It's big, it's black, and it's a hole.

Air Jordan starts directly below the finish of Tendonitis Traverse, and right of the Breashears' Crack. Look for two small underclings, and a super small downward crimp. Start with the left on the better undercling, and right hand on the small crimp. Work out the foot beta for the toss up to the rail with the right hand. There is a sweet spot here that makes the move feel better.Then traverse left to a crimper (left hand) but you don't get to use the big jug that is two inches to th...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

I just realized today that although I tend to think of Morrison as an 'ok' place to boulder, I've given most of the problems here three stars. They really are good, although there is some contrivance and an un-aesthetic appeal to the area to a degree. It's also kinda cool bouldering and looking down on the town of Morrison and watching bikers and hikers cruise by, and being able to go get ice cream mid-session.

A little slice of Rifle for the Front Range, polished, slopey, and slippery defines climbing here. If ya dig Rifle, you will probably like it. Personally I hate climbing in Rifle, so this place kind of sucked. Might of been good for the first thousand people that climbed here.

So I was there bouldering with my boyfriend on Sunday (12.6.15), and I'm pretty sure I forgot my red messenger bag with a bunch of climbing stuff in it. Went up there yesterday, and the bag was no where to be found. I think I left it at that first warm-up boulder. If anyone picked it up, or you know someone who has it, you can contact me at 3039064952.
