Routes in Plethora Boulder (Left Gonad)

Description

The Plethora Boulders host a number of classic problems in an easy-to-get-to location and make for a fantastic workout. The majority of the problems are on the east face and thus receive nice late-morning to mid-day sun in the winter and make for a shady place to climb on a summer evening. The rock, like everything in this section of canyon, is sandstone. Almost all the problems on the east faces are on excellent quality rock. However, dubius stone can be found on the west faces.

I have included almost all the problems I know of on these boulders -- which is probably not all -- and all grades are what I have been told on a mini tour of the area. Unfortunately, I do not know any of the names or guide book grades. So if you know them please submit them!

The easiest descent for all problems on this boulder is off the south face.

Getting There

From US Highway 50, about 10 minutes from downtown Junction, turn onto CO Highway 141 towards Gateway/Naturita. Take this highway for about 5 minutes until you see the obvious, triangular Fossil Boulder on your right. Pull off here, check out the fossil imprints, and warm up on the easy, super-classic high balls. Then hop back in your car and drive 100' south to the Plethora Boulders.
