Description

This is a crag in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley/Lookout/Tungsten Mine area in Boulder Canyon. In assisting with this reorganization, I found some notes from 2001 with Mark Rolofson for the area which then were filled in with his Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Vol II, The Upper Canyon. While, this is by no means a destination area, the info may be useful to fill in the details for the area. It has probably 20 routes, some of which date back to at least the 1980s.

Getting There

Park at the Practice Rock pullout ~8 miles past Elephant Rocks. Hike up to the Bowling Alley, down left & below Tungsten Mine, up & left around Tungsten Mine, around the left side of the lookout through a chimney slot to the bench above the Lookout. Move right and find your climb. Expect 15-20 minutes for the approach.

Per Mark E Dixon: rather than scramble up the chimney behind the Lookout (which is awkward with a pack,) just continue up the hillside before cutting to the right above small cliffs. If you follow cairns/trail up the hill, you will see a tree stump with a cairn on top. 50ish feet uphill from this is a good spot to head right. Admittedly it is easier to find this variant approach once you've been to the Hideout.

Mark Rolofson has an excellent Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide, Volume II, The Upper Canyon. Consider it for more details.

The route list is currently (1/17) out of order. The Hideout has a left and right sector, with the approach coming in from the left. From the left sector, reach the right by heading downhill a bit and right.

Brat Slamet is the first route on the right sector. Jan 5, 2017
