If anyone is interested in helping me do a clean up here, I will dispose of the garbage we collect. I am thinking of getting it done in the next two weeks. 1 or 2 people would be a great help.
Thanks,

I have bouldered here for years. I am sure no where near as long as A.H. A great deal of fun problems exist. I take the 5 year old here often. I added a few more photos. Jul 24, 2008

The slab under and right of the nose is a perfect place for people who aspire to do the real hard Platte face climbs to practice. Bring a pad. Aug 30, 2007
