Another great spot to do contrived Morrison sequences!
This is a bouldering spot that is a bit more like caving than climbing. You have to climb down into a jumble of boulders to get to the start of the lines.And you have to be careful not to drag your rear over the same rocks as you climb up.
On the plus side, there are a couple of cool sequences you can do, and you can come up with half a dozen variations by declaring various eliminates.
All the problems would fall in the V0 to V3 range, unless you get really crazy with eliminates.
The Cockpit lies about 15 yards right of the tree slab, roughly midway between Nautilus and the Lobby.
Look for chalk and climb on down into the Pit.
Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for The Cockpit:
Start at the bottom of the Pit and climb up and left on jugs. Climb out of the pit going left on huge incut rails, but don't fall! The landing is poor. Walk off left. Worth doing if you are there....[more]Browse More Classics in CO
This was always a good place to boulder. Every day I would excavate a few more rocks and it got deeper and deeper! Maybe some of you have continued the project. It seemed that it could go on for ever. The Cock Pit became twice as long as when I found it, Maybe it's three times by now.
