The main north face is in the shade among some trees, but it'll be a great place to be in the summer. The rock is pretty good quality and while it's fairly close to the road, it feels super secluded. There's also potential for other ascents in this cluster of boulders that await.
Park on the other side of the road from the Mecca area (and a bit north of that pull off). Head towards the main cluster of boulders that include Swing Low. From there, head up the hill and south. You should bump into the cluster of boulders where Austen Boulder is located.

Featured Route For Austen Boulder
Afflatus Flip V4 6B Colorado
: Grand Junction Area
: ... : Austen Boulder
Afflatus Flip is short and sweet. The rock quality is fantastic, and the movement is entertaining.Sit start with a right hand incut edge and a left hand jug undercling. From there, make a big right hand move to a three finger edge, place a left heel hook, bump the left hand up to a three finger edge, then make a move to a great left hand edge, follow to the lip, and mantel atop the boulder.A possible linkup from this to Pemberly Place may be worth some effort....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
