Description 

Apocrita is a small boulder with at least one problem on its north face and possibly the east face overhang. The rock quality is primarily good, and the landings are as well.

Getting There 

It is located on the west boundary of the Main Mecca area. From the green gate parking area, head downhill on the foot path, cross East Creek, head uphill a short distance, make a left on the dirt track, make a right when near Birdhouse, and continue past Moby Dick and uphill toward the canyon rim through a sagebrush meadow. Upon reaching Gunny Gold, head south about 20 yards. Reference the page map for a precise location.

Sit start with hands matched on the rugged edge. From there, gain the rail above, then move slight left to a pair of good edges/pockets, bring the feet along to the face, and stand up to the lip for an easy finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
