DescriptionThese are granite blocks. There are about 25 crack problems in the area worth doing with a concentration of fist and OW cracks, some fingers, hands and chimneys, and a few other problems including a LB flake, three mantles, and two faces. It's a great area for a half day to practice your jams or to get tuned up.
Long pants and tape are recommended, and knee pads are helpful for some problems.
The routes are classified as TR only because of posting limitations with the difficulty rating scale. These are mostly boulder problems (not TRs), in which YDS ratings are more fitting than V ratings.
The area is complex to navigate, and the problems listed are not all that the area offers. For a free comprehensive guide, send me (Kent) a request via e-mail. Any comments that you provide, good or bad, are appreciated. Also, I'm offering a free signed Crack Technique Manual to the first person who provides substantial feedback on the routes/problems and the guide.
The area is frequented by paint pellet game enthusiasts. The participants I’ve met have been cordial and we’ve worked out plans as to who is where so I don’t get shot or interfere with their games. Starting before 9:00 is good to establish your presence before the games commence.
I am not the first to boulder at the rocks. The area was briefly mentioned by Ken Trout in his Rock and Ice S. Platte article (1990s?). The Green Meanie Boulder is listed in both Hubbel’s 1997 guide and in the 2012 Fixed Pin S Platte - N Volume guidebook by Haas, Schneider, and Weinhold.
Getting ThereFrom Sedalia, drive 10 miles west on CO Hwy 67 to the turn off for Rampart Range Road (RRR). This intersection is the reference location for the climbs. See the individual areas for specific directions to each.
For the Main Area, park in the ORV lot at the intersection. The Dispersed Boulders are along the main road (Hwy 67) or down RRR.
