Climb the overhanging arete. This has amazing moves, amazing rock, and not so amazing proximity to I-70.


Park at the trailhead parking just north of I-70 at exit 201. Walk down the on-ramp until the first light pole, turn right and walk up a fairly obvious trail for about 50 feet. You can see the boulder (more of a mini-cliff) from the highway.


Pads and, if you can swing one, a spotter. Also recommended is a pair of headphones to drown out the traffic.

I believe Steve Mammen back in the '80s got the first ascent on Frisco Buttress as well as Via The Hot One. The best two boulder problems in Summit County that I know of. Oct 11, 2012
