Description

This steep talus field lies in the narrows of the Poudre Canyon underneath the Electric Ocean Wall. A large variety of bouldering can be found here from V0-V11. Almost all of the boulders listed are minutes from the car, but a few gems await all the way at the top of the talus. The rock quality here is less than perfect, and many of the landings are sup-par. Although the area is convenient, if you are looking for high-quality bouldering, continue just a few minutes up canyon to the Narrows Blocs, which has some of the best bouldering in the entire canyon.

Getting There

Park the same as for the Electric Ocean Wall. For info on finding the specific boulders, print the beta map picture below.
