This is a small boulder tucked away behind another on. There doesn't seem to be any potential for development beyond the boulders north face. The rock is sharp and mossy, but it's solid.

Getting There 

If you are walking uphill through Upper Caprock, you will see a small tree marking the entrance to a little corridor of small boulders. Clam is the second boulder on the right when you walk into the little alcove. The boulder in front of it leans on it making a small cave between the two.

Sit start with you hands matched on a deep rail. Shoot up to a crimp and then throw high for a lip on the top. Reset your feet and use the sparse texture on the top to top out.The top side of the boulder is a slopey, mossy mess without much texture. This makes toping out a little more interesting than usual; the good news is you only a few feet off the ground....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
