Description 

This is a classic sds problem, shady, solid, and kinda lowball. Throw straight up from the big huecoed start to matching slopers move right hand to horseshoe sloper, static up to another "horseshoe" hold, followed by a crazy mantle and up. It was well chalked up by me, Andy, and friends, including lots of cool unclimbed lines on the boulders next to it, called The Potato and The Egg by Horan's Boulder Bouldering. Bella is the first boulder you'll see and the problem is on the backside. The problem maybe goes at V3/4.

Getting There 

Hike to the Tomato Boulder off the Kohler Mesa trail, head up creekbed about 40 yards and it is off your right. It is nestled with the Egg and the Potato Boulders, and it is described and climbed? in Horan's Boulder Bouldering. The problem is on the backside of the 1st boulder you see from the creekbed. Has anyone climbed here?

Featured Route For Bella Boulder

Oxy V7-8 7B  CO : Flatirons : ... : Bella Boulder
This is a really nice problem with one of the more classic slopers to hold in the Flatirons. It climbs a bulge on the north side of the Potato boulder in BH's Best of Boulder Guidebook (or maybe it's the Egg, anyway it's obvious when you are there) The guide seems to call it V3(!?) Not sure if this was a FA or not. Go do it!SDS on 2 nice edges, right hand up, big move left to killer sloper, bust to lip...a fantastic hueco-esque problem. Go do it....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Funny, I ran into a guy looking for this boulder off the Mallory Cave Trail. He looked lost.
