The Lookout - south face.
This is a small crag with about 10 routes in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley area. Its submission was triggered by a reorganization of the Boulder Canyon section. The original route here was The Hard They Come, 11 by K. Lugbill & C. Newmann back in 1980. At one point, this was an area to head towards, to get away from the crowds.

This is a fun, little, warmup crack that is quite a bit better than it looks.Jam up the prominent, right diagonal hand to fist crack. Lots of features to work with but a little less straightforward than it looks. There is an anchor at the top that is slightly out of view, on the left side of the crack....[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Granby: a 5.9 route (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Climb a short, right-facing corner to a roof. Hand traverse left around the roof, past first bolt, to a mantle onto a small ledge, past a 2nd bolt. Climb easy moves to finish. (FA: Mark Rolofson and Mary Reidmiller, 2004).
