Description

Begin below the gently overhanging face on the only flat, clear patch of ground. Beginning slightly to the right of center, climb straight up exiting through the break to your right near the top.

If you fail near the top, there is a remote chance you could save yourself by lunging for the nearby aspen tree.

This doesn't see much traffic, so don't grab the brittle small holds- they will break off.

Possibly the best highball in the county? Prove me wrong!

Location

From the parking lot by the bridge take the trail down stream through the edge of a small aspen stand then turn up hill and thrash through underbrush for 75-100 feet to the Plain Sight boulder. This route is on the SE(ish)- tallest face.

I may be a bit off on my geopgraphy as well. Some of East Fork would be in Mineral County. Major (no pun intended) props for F.A. of Full Stealth Mode. Sketchy landing and uncertain holds! Dec 17, 2010

Steve! Right on dude. Guilty on all counts- smack talking and geographic faux pas! Glad to see you got on it. I WILL need to check out E Fork. Thanks and I hope you enjoyed it! Dec 16, 2010

Well, Jesse, since you asked to be proved wrong, check out some of the highballs up East Fork. Not only high but difficult as well. I would put full stealth mode more around V0+ with a pucker factor, and trying not to come across as a jerk, this boulder is actually in Hinsdale County, not Archuleta, where the climbing in the canyon is.
