Climb out roof along lip to gain big arete and face.

Thousands have probably looked at this boulder, and maybe few have climbed it? This boulder sits right off the CCC trail about 200ft before The Monster Bouldering area. Not sure if this has been done before or if it remains unfinished? If anyone knows more please comment.


Hike up CCC trail and once you pass the lower switch-backs keep an eye out on your right. If you reach the Little Flatiron you've gone too far.


Lots of pads and spotters, the drop off is pretty steep.

I always thought that thing looked cool! Landing definitely looks heinous though. Mar 14, 2011

Nice Adrian! Yeah, I was never sure if this was done before. I have yet to try it. Where did you start from? Jun 21, 2011

After watching the video of the ascent on Adrain's FB page, he certainly climbed the boulder, but it's not the same problem as what Remo describes. Instead of climbing the lip to get over the roof and gain the arete, Adrian climbed the underside of the roof where there is a horizontal crack where the two boulders meet and moved left to gain both aretes. Still looked like a good TALL climb. Nice work dude.

Adrian, can you post your problem as a new route in this area. I still think this route, by Remo's description, is up for grabs. Jun 23, 2011

oh ok, cool, thanks for clarifying that. guess i gotta go back now and give that remo's line a try Jun 30, 2011
What's the link to the vid? Remo posted this as speculation, I don't think he intended a specific line to be climbed. Sounds like Adrian took the natural line. Now maybe Ian can add some holds in for a V10 variation?!!?!!? Jun 30, 2011

I know Eric Z top roped the thin triangular shaped face. The aretes were off. Don't know if it was ever truly 'bouldered' or not. Maybe Paul Jones would know. Jun 30, 2011

Can't link the video because it's a facebook embedded video. I think John "friend-ed" Adrian to view it. I would say Adrian followed the natural line, using the crack and both aretes.

I think a problem going out the lip could be a problem in itself, but Adrian definitely followed what was natural. Jun 30, 2011

Remember to change this back to a project if it's a separate problem. Jun 30, 2011

i posted the line i did as ObZen, it did seam like the most natural line but the line john explained sounds sweet too

i agree with paul remo should change this back to a project and the lip variation can be the CCC trail project Jun 30, 2011
