The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber Details

Description

Ben's Roof ascends an obvious northwest-facing roof/bulge (the side of the boulder away from the talus hillside). Begin from a low start in the obvious place and ascend this bulging and very cool feature. Interesting, fun and, in spite of its small stature, everybody likes this problem. If it were a little taller, I would give it 3 stars.

Location

Ben's Roof is found easily if one starts at the Bierstadt Corridor and walks down valley for 50 yards staying about 15 yards from the talus that looms above the area through a maze of small boulders, scrub brush and trees. Initially you will pass Jenny Craig and Public Execution up on your right. Ben's Roof is an obvious roof problem just before you get to the block with Dark Crystal.
