Comments: I visited these park boulders while riding bikes with my kids, and we had a great time. For park/playground boulders, these are pretty legit. Given Denver traffic, these boulders offer a nice option for the time crunched climber.

Comments: The Boone Lunge refers to what started as parlor trick problem. It is two-handed dyno problem that launches up and left to a big sloping knob; bottom to top. Spotting that jagged landing is the crux :)

Comments: a good one for training your sloper form; doesn't get the traffic worthy of its quality.

Comments: you'll likely experience a tad bit o' exposure once you pass the sloping rail. rigid stemmed friends are damn near necessary as flex cabled units would likely rip if you fell. this is one of those curious situations where the rigid stem 'levers' or 'pitons' to create reliable pro.

Comments: pretty classic line of face climbing. this is what i envision climbing in a jungle would be like.


Location: North Carolina : Moore's Wall : North End : Nicotine (5.13a/b)
By: sean barb When: Feb 1, 2009

Comments: back when i climbed it, nicotine had its own independent anchor. i racked up with a small tcu that protected some fun climbing between the pin and an anchor of equalized nuts. i'm relying on memories of at least 12y ago, but it seems that the anchor was roughly the same height as the mighty mouse anchor; higher than the middle road anchor ledge. the anchor just sorta rotted away and most ascents these days just traverse over to mighty mouse.
