Three Buffoons Rock Climbing
Janka Flaska giving it one more try.
This is a 50 ft crag located just upstream from the Dome, Frogman's Pinnacle, Ament's Rock near the mouth of Boulder Canyon. Nice name...now there were 3 of us there...hey..... Obscure, short, but uncrowded. It is listed in both Rossiter's guides for Boulder Canyon with a single, oddly named route, Anus Great, a 4-inch crack. At least 2 other lines have been done here.
A. Left Cheek
, 11- R/X or TR, 1p, 50'.
B. Anus Great
, 8+, 1p, 50', gear.
C. Right Cheek
, 7, 1p, 50', gear.
Park at either of the lots at the mouth of Boulder Canyon, as for The Dome or Elephant Rocks. Cross the bridge, follow the trail about 200m upstream past a fenced part to a sign indicating the border of Boulder. Look uphill & identify a short, wider-looking crack. Hike up a loose path about 75m to the base. Beware of poison ivy, especially at the base of the right side of the crag.

I lost a BD ATC-Guide two weeks ago or so up in Boulder Canyon. I think I lost it around the Dome/Elephant Butresses area (but could be somewhere else). I'm just a poor college kid with no money and now no belay device. If you found it and returned it, I would be extremely grateful and would be more than happy to reward you with some beer.
