Description

The Black Hole is on the hillside just north of town. Check out classics such as Helicopter and Cytogrinder. Also, any number of linkups can be made. For example, try linking up Tendonitis traverse with a problem up the black hole, or make your problem into a loop!

Getting There

Park on the South side of Morrison Rd, in Morrison at the obvious pullouts. Head east down Morrison Rd. just past where guardrails begin on the north side. Now, head up the trail strait north and the black hole is at the top. It's big, it's black, and it's a hole.

I just realized today that although I tend to think of Morrison as an 'ok' place to boulder, I've given most of the problems here three stars. They really are good, although there is some contrivance and an un-aesthetic appeal to the area to a degree. It's also kinda cool bouldering and looking down on the town of Morrison and watching bikers and hikers cruise by, and being able to go get ice cream mid-session. Jan 25, 2010

A little slice of Rifle for the Front Range, polished, slopey, and slippery defines climbing here. If ya dig Rifle, you will probably like it. Personally I hate climbing in Rifle, so this place kind of sucked. Might of been good for the first thousand people that climbed here. Jun 2, 2013

So I was there bouldering with my boyfriend on Sunday (12.6.15), and I'm pretty sure I forgot my red messenger bag with a bunch of climbing stuff in it. Went up there yesterday, and the bag was no where to be found. I think I left it at that first warm-up boulder. If anyone picked it up, or you know someone who has it, you can contact me at 3039064952.
Thanks!
