Description

This is a highball problem that starts on the far right and traverses up and to the left with a reachy finish at the end. Start on the big holds on the far right, and follow the obvious line that moves up and to the left.

Location

This route faces the creek. Start on the obvious chalked holds on the far right. The topout can be walked off.

Protection

It has a wet and rocky landing. Two or more crash pads are recommended. Bring a spotter.

Getting pads down to River Block is a bit of a pain. Don't come in from Milton Boulder.

Come in from the East; park in the lower lot, cross the bridge, and hike like you're going to Upper Redgarden. Then hook into the West Ridge trail. Also, if you have crew, you can park a car on the road, hike the pads down to the river, and toss them across during Fall/Winter. Nov 3, 2017

Wow, I have to say I loved the movement of this boulder! Its funny, I avoided this boulder for months because of its height, but I don't really think its that "unsafe" or deserving of the "R" rating. It didn't feel sketchy in comparison to other moderate Front Range highballs and has a decent landing and topout. A new personal favorite for me! Apr 21, 2018

I was totally blown away with the quality of this problem! All the holds felt really great and the sequence just felt right. The topout has some really nice jugs to pull yourself over the edge with, so it didn't feel too sketch. Highly recommended! Aug 29, 2018
