Description 

This area contains a small group of boulders a few hundred yards below The Book, in the field on the south side of the trail. These boulders include "The World's Greatest Boulder" which is apparently not exactly that.

Getting There 

Head towards The Book. This area is found on the south side of the trail, a little beyond the turnoff for The Book

Rock Climbing Photo: Finger Crack.

Finger Crack V0 4  CO : Lumpy Ridge : ... : The Book Boulders
This problem is on the "World's Greatest Boulder"--refer to "NE arete" for approach and orientation. It ascends the obvious finger crack through a roof on the north side. I haven't successfully completed the brutal finger jams from a full sit-start, and it is reasonably challenging, though much easier starting standing up. Eliminate the upper face holds if desired....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Hey, these boulders appear to be on ranch property. Does anyone know if there are any access issues for these guys?

Talked to some Forest Service guys up here today and they actually pointed me towards the 'greatest boulder'. Just make sure to stay on the trails at all times.
