Morrison is a classic Front Range bouldering area. It's likely best known for the problems in The Lobby and Black Hole, on the cliffside north of town. Here one will find a hardman's delight, offering a number of classic problems, linkups, and eliminations at V5 and above. Most problems tackle greasy slopers with a few wicked crimps interspersed. North Morrison receives high traffic, which is good and bad. The area is dirty and polished. However, here one can receive a gym like workout, on real rock, in an encouraging atmosphere. Everyone knows your name, or at least the beta. I know there is alternative, quality bouldering around Morrison that climbs actual boulders. Having never climbed them, I'll depend on others to add this to the site.
Getting There [Edit]
Easy. From Boulder, take CO 93 to Golden, US Highway 6 to C-470 heading South, and get off 5-10 minutes later at Morrison. Take a right after exiting. One can also take a right just past Golden on Heritage Rd, which becomes a highway that goes by Red Rocks and spits you out into Morrison on the west side. From Denver, take US 285 to C-470, then head north the the Morrison exit, and take a left into town.
