The Bat Cave has a great overhanging roof with some known problems and some potential as well. It's always dry due to its steepness, so it's a great year round boulder. The area is a little more trafficked due to hikers and folks coming to look at the petroglyphs in the area, but it's not bad at all.

Getting There 

Follow map for directions.

Past the railroad tracks, turn right into the parking lot right before you cross the bridge. Follow the obvious trail up the hill and past a cluster of boulders on the right side. Once you've passed the boulders on the right, look up and right to see the Bat Cave. Hike up the "steep" hill.

From there, match a heel, and move up some positive holds and out the roof to a positive rail. From there, match on some crimps, and make a big move to the obvious jug. I had to do this in a very dynamic way, but I've seen someone static it as well. From there, make a few easy moves before a big move to the sl...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
