The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Twenty feet right of Pink Fink, zig-zag up edges via some long pulls to the apex of the face. One of my favorite moderates in the area, although I only found the courage to do it once. Note that it's not over until you grab the lip.

Inexplicably oft-ignored, this is a great problem, with terrific position and offering ~30 feet of climbing on perfect edges, albeit some of them a little slippery in the more polished pink rock. If the line for this problem stood out a little more, e.g., obvious starting holds, obvious line ... I would give it four stars. If Ben would name this problem, its popularity would skyrocket.


Ben's Highball is located about 20 feet right of Pink Fink on the boulder of the same name.


A bunch of pads for courage, but not falling near the top is the only real option.
