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

Begin from a sit start shared with Champagne Left. Bump up and traverse right across perfect sloping rails to nice edges and then the top. Although the opening move out of the sds is slightly awkward, the quality of the rock is absolutely perfect and the movement across the face is outstanding.

NOTE: Although this problem and what I've called Champagne Left were never actually named by the early developers, the boulder was apparently coined the Champagne Block, and I've given these problems the namesake moniker until further notice. If Ben, Jason, David, Jeremy, Cam or Jamie read this, feel free to chime in.

Location

This problem begins from a sit start in the center of the vertical downvalley-face of the boulder 20 yards uphill from the problem Seurat. Perfect salt-and-pepper granite, you can't miss it.

Protection

1-2 Organic pads and maybe a spotter for the finish.

Really fun eliminate mantling out the good triangular edge (up and right of the start) with your left hand and going all the way to the top with your right. Feels very improbable when you first start gunning for it, but keep pushing through with that left and you just might surprise yourself. Obviously a bit reach dependent though. Sep 6, 2010
