Getting There 

Drive West on Canyon from Boulder and set your odometer at the bridge just east of the Dome. Drive 8.1mi up the canyon and a little ways beyond Boulder Falls, look for Practice Rock on the north side of the road with a gravel pullout. Park here then head across the creek on the south side of the road via a tree bridge.

To access the routes, hike downstream to the east end of the wall then scramble up an easy ramp to the base of the routes. Descent from the top is via rappel.

This subarea is on the far right side.

The War on Peace 5.12a/b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : The Patio
This is a good overhanging route that starts on the lower rightside of Bell Buttress, just up from the tree crossing at the Patio boulder problem. It is the second route on the wall (there are 5 new route) when looking at the cliff and going left to right. Stick clip the first bolt (or boulder up to it) then fire up a series of difficult moves to a good stance. Shake out then continue up on 5.10 moves to the top and the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
