Description 

This is the zone below CR 304 and in the vicinity of the Barbara Whipple Trail system. Most boulders are a 2-10 minute approach from the footbridge.

Getting There 

Turn at the one traffic light on highway 24 in Buena Vista onto East Main Street. Head east through one stop sign, away from the collegiate peaks. You'll pass the elementary school on the left, the road will turn to dirt and you will bear left. Park in the lot at the Buena Vista ballfields, public restrooms and river park. The bridge is right there.

Start at the far left edge of the boulder's western face where the vein peters out. Traverse right as the ground slopes up with you, which is nice when you have no spotter; could also go padless for that reason. Crux is in the first 15 feet before getting to the juggy section. A harder (V3-V4?) variation stays low and uses none of the jugs until the end of the face when you dyno to the lip (fun). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
