Description Suggest change

The centerpiece of Mt Evans bouldering, The Dali Boulder offers an astounding concentration of inspiring boulder problems. Pebble wrestlers from around the globe flock to this block to tangle with renowned test-pieces such as Dali (V6/9), No More Greener Grasses (V12), Clear Blue Skies (V12) and one of Colorado’s hardest problems, Ode to the Modern Man (V14). The rock is excellent quartzite, streaked with a rainbow of subtle hues. Though you will find the occasional knob, flake, or sloper, the south face is peppered with crisp edges, and as such, most of the harder problems favor crimp masters.

Most of the problems ascend the South face of the block, which rears up at an impressive 30-degree angle. Although south-facing, the steepness of the boulder provides good shade for most of the summer. The majority of the lines on the Dali block are on the upper end of the difficulty scale, though numerous excellent problems of all grades can be found in the immediate vicinity.

Getting There Suggest change

Continue along the trail past Seurat, traversing the base of the hill side for another 50 yards or so. Eventually the trail will turn sharply to the left, heading steeply uphill through the trees. After a short time the trail ends at the west shoulder of the Dali Boulder, on the edge of the talus.
