Description 

These two boulders are on the left side of the main wash. One faces away from the road and the other leaning next to it has a large dagger of rock hanging precariously off the top (I'm pretty sure it's solid).

Getting There 

Walk up the main wash about halfway and then trend left towards the cliff.

It has an easy top-out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
