The Bierstadt Corridor Arete is on the far left of...

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 >>>


Start on head high edges next to the arete and make a couple moves to the flat-but-sloping lip. There's pretty much nothing up top to bear down on after the lip, setting the stage for an array of stylish manteling and entertaining armyman topout maneuvers, depending on the climber's skill set and familiarity with the problem.

This rig is similar to the Thing Across From Bierstadt, in that neither is spectacular and yet they get climbed and warmed up on regularly since they're just a few feet from Bierstadt.


The arete on the boulder on the left side of the Bierstadt Corridor, directly across from Bierstadt and Ludders Pinch and about 6 feet left of what has been inauspiciously referred to as the Thing Across From Bierstadt.


An Organic pad will do just fine, but you might have to move a rock chair which is occasionally constructed under the problem (see photo).

Seems to me that the more obvious line is to sit start on the juggy ledge instead of up high. This pushes the grade to about V2 I'd say.
