This is a subarea of the Bell Buttress introduced due to a request fo organizational clarity. It contains about 10 sport routes in the intermediate to advanced range of difficulty. Some routes require a bit of traditional protection.
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.
