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


Much like the 4-star problem Bierstadt, this is a beta-intensive problem with lots of subtleties. Given V9, it is considered a bit harder than Bierstadt, which used to be considered V10. Begin from a stand start just left of Bierstadt on a RH pinch and LH crimp right next to it. Surf up and right a few feet into Bierstadt and finish.


Banksy is a variation to Bierstadt that starts just to the left and climbs up and right into it.


A couple Organic pads and maybe a spotter/pad-mover to cushion the blow as you work out the nuances.
