This rock is just like the Ute pass boulders only it's in downtown Mantou. This was my front yard for sometime. B. Becker gave it to us to rent . He did all the hard first ascents. This is Brent Kurtzman climbing. Private property!

That problem took me months to get. At some point during that time Jimmy Dunn came over for a social visit, and fired right up it. Bryan Becker lived in the house before I did and also could do all these very difficult routes with no problem. My favorite memory of that house is sitting in a lawn chair under the rock taking in the sun only to be taken out of my bliss by Harvey Carter coming through our front gate with a case of Natural Light. It was a fun afternoon. I wonder who lives there now? It just hit me that this photo was taken the day Dylan Becker was born. I drove to the hospital that night to be with Bryan and meet Dylan. How are you Brent? Sep 28, 2009


My friend Lauren is living in this house now! We came to visit from Chicago to do some climbing, and her boyfriend Luke took us to Ute Pass to boulder. We were checking out the photos on here and were pleasantly surprised to see this photo of the boulder in her yard! May 21, 2016
