Description Suggest change

Boulders scattered along a steep hillside just off US Highway 6 in CCC. Maverick's Boulder is fairly easy to access, very nice rock, I believe it is gneiss....more info in one of the Colorado bouldering guides.

Getting There Suggest change

Heading west on US Highway 6 from Golden, park at mile marker 268. The boulders are across the street and up the hill. The Maverick's Boulder is pretty huge and obvious and takes only a few minutes to get to from the bottom.
