Description

This is a nice chunk of granite in the narrows of Boulder Canyon. It is been largely ignored by rock climbers, with the exception of a few obscure sports climbs at its base. However, for a few awesome winters, it was a site of excellent ice farming. A number of fine 1-3 pitch ice climbs were created. Hit and Run, Meow Mix, Mellow Yellow, Book of Secrets, Brown Recluse, Winkelman, Second Leg, Virtual Recluse, Virtual Reality, Scotty Gully, The Kerbash.

Getting There

Drive up W Hwy 119 (aka Canyon) from the villa of Boulder past Boulder Falls. As you enter the narrows, about 8 1/2 miles from the Elephant Buttresses, there is a maze of rocks on the S side of the canyon, across from Boulder Creek. Just upstream from Vampire Rock (a medium sized chunk of rock about 3 pitches high) is a slightly lower angled mass called Black Widow Slab.
