Bearhug Boulder is an okay boulder right off the main trail past the amphitheater. It gets hot in the summer, like most of Riggs' Hill, but is an option if you're looking to get outside.

Getting There 

Hike up the main trail leaving the parking area that passes through the amphitheater with the wooden benches. When you get about 100 yards up the trail, there is a smaller trail that branches off the main trail and heads back down and around the west side of Riggs' Hill. The boulder sits right where that smaller trail branches off.

The location is approximate. If you have any info, let me know, and I'll make it more accurate.

This is a short route - 7 or 8 moves.Sit start with a hand match on a ledge on the south face just outside of the weird scooped out feature on the rock. Crank up to a good ledge. Throw for a slopey knob. Traverse right to some big jugs. Top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
