BETA PHOTO: Above Boulder's west face.


Above is a smaller boulder that is actually just one segment of the uppermost cliff line of Four Blocks. The rock quality is solid and uniquely gritty for the area. The landings for the boulder are good. The west face is the climbable side and has potential for several problems.

Getting There 

From the Four Blocks parking area, climb east up the hill to the cliff band. There is some scrambling required at the cliff band, but it doesn't get too crazy. Gain the upper plateau, and the next cliff band will be another 30 yards. Reference the page map for an exact location.

Stand start with a waist high, right hand edge and a left hand, inverted pinch-sidepull. From there, paste the feet on the wall, gain a right hand crimp, bump the left hand up to a sidepull, walk the feet into position, match hands on a crimp, then move through some slopers to match on a pinch (hollow sounding, but held when I completely weighted it) at the lip, and mantel on top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
