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


Prehistoric Bird ascends the middle of the downvalley-facing East face from a stand start below the incipient seam above. Begin with frustrating hands and feet and sort out a starting sequence that works for you. Gain a thin slopey 3-finger ripple 9 feet up, adjust your feet and bear down on the thin ripple to gain a right hand intermediate in the seam or go again via a double clutch move to snatch the lip and pull over. A good problem to work all by yourself, as one pad will do.


Prehistoric Bird is located in the middle of the downvalley-facing east face of the Second Willow Boulder, or the boulder out in the willows just before you get to Area A proper. An inobvious less than single-track path winds through the willows for 30-40 feet to reach the base of this boulder.


A single Organic will cushion the falls just fine.
