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.

It's easier than it looks to make the first clip, but bring a small cam or a stick clip if in doubt. Make a fun, rising traverse left with small holds until you reach a nice rest stance on the arete near the 4th clip. The crux is pulling onto the upper wall, and the last clip could seem tough for shorter folks....[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).
