Description

This is a lonely boulder at the Hell's Hole Trailhead on West Chicago Creek Rd. near Mt Evans. The problem of interest here is the classic slab problem Laying in Wait. There is a short V1 problem to the right of Laying In Wait, but besides that, there are no real moderates here for a warmup. It is best to warmup elsewhere, possibly at Three Sisters in Evergreen or at Morrison.

Getting There

From Idaho Springs, follow CO-103 south as if you are driving to the summit of Mt Evans. After 7 miles at the big hairpin before the road begins climbing more steeply, turn right onto West Chicago Creek Rd. Follow this road for 3 miles to its end at the Hell's Hole Trailhead. The boulder is just to the northwest of the parking area.
