Description

This is a big boulder with the side facing the road dominated by a 15" tall, dead vertical face.

Getting There

Park at the teal treatment plant, and follow the trail up about 5 minutes. Wander right through the forest to a pretty big boulder. On the side facing back down toward the treatment house is a 15 foot tall vertical face with a perfectly flat landing. This is Moai, AKA Tall Face.

Found a boulder that fits the description of this one except the tall "15" foot face is facing away from the treatment plant not towards it. The route Maui looks like no one has done it in a decade. If I'm missing the boulder, let me know, because 1 minute behind this boulder is a boulder with a cave and what looks like a route going out to a finger crack. It looks clean enough that someone only ever did it once though. Kind of hard to find these from the directions provided also. I don't know how long it takes you to hike, but from Moai to Flat Anger, it is like a 15 second walk behind the boulder. Pictures of the rocks would be pretty helpful. Jul 31, 2014

I will try to get some photos and GPS coordinates up soon, since I live close by.

The Moai Boulder with its tall face looks back down toward the Estes Valley where the treatment plant is, but every time you go, you will indeed find a blank face that looks like nobody's done it in a decade. Rain washes the chalk off, and each ascent seems like a first ascent.

The boulder with the cave and the route going right to a finger crack is Flatanger. Sep 29, 2014
