Description

The Meditation Boulder is a rather squat rock, the centerpiece of which is the Meditation Traverse, an excellent problem to get warmed up on. The south face of Meditation is home to a handful of tougher problems that, despite being a bit contrived, are fun, steep, and powerful. This is a versatile block, featuring many variations on its main traverse and what seems like dozens of unrecorded short, easy up-and-overs, and it's not surprising to find a bit of a crowd on the Meditation Boulder.

Back in 1995, Bob Horan, in his Fort Collins Area bouldering guide, noted that Meditation's "flat summit makes for a peaceful place to relax while gazing into the still waters below." Indeed, on a nice fall day, when the jet-skiers and speed-boaters have stored their toys for the winter, Meditation Boulder remains an excellent place to relax and take in the foothills.

Getting There

The Meditation Boulder lies downhill and slightly north of the Eliminator Boulder. Follow the trail from the south side of the parking lot around the south side of the ridge, turning left on a trail that leads past the Talent Scout. Continue on this path as it heads northeast, passing the Eliminator Boulder and reaching Meditation's south face shortly thereafter.

Anybody know the name and grade of the problem that is the Low Meditation Traverse but moving right to left staying under the roof? Super fun problem, but I don't see it in the book or on MP. Definitely one of the hardest routes on this rock. Apr 16, 2016
