Access Issue: Most of these boulders are within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, regulated & patrolled by the US. Details


Black Streak is a nice highball line charging up the center of the Peasants Boulder. The start is powerful, but soon gives way to balancey moves up the slab. Many of the feet are in the mossy black streak, making some of the moves feel that much more dicey. The psychological crux comes halfway up the face, with a tenuous reach to good incuts, gaining the obvious horizontal crack ~8 feet from the lip.

Begin with a stand start with hands in the horizontal break ~ 6 feet off the deck. Paste your feet on and slap up & right for the diagonal rail. Move out right, mantel onto the ledge, then follow the diminishing rail to a long reach to good holds. Lieback up the bottoming dihedral & topout easily.


Climbs just right of the prominent black streak on the W face of the Peasants Boulder.


Many pads & spotters. This line is harder than it looks, so beware.
