Hello Central: Enjoy it while it lasts.


I call it the Bonsai Boulder because the tiny little krummholz pine growing straight out of the rock comments amusingly on the small stature of this rock.
NEO stands for New Englanders Only. Not for exclusivity's sake; just that only a New Englander would bother opening his pads and booting up here.
There are two problems. Both are two move wonders on crumbling granite. If two move wonders on so-so rock are not your thing, feel free to ignore this rock. However, if you're like me, and many others who cut their teeth in the Northeast, you may just flourish by getting every bit of climbing out of every rock you get.
I stop here on my way to other locations within Alderfer. Maybe you will find you come to do the same.

Getting There

This has the same start as Hello Central, but throw right to sloper in the middle of the "M". Throw in a kneebar and go for the quartz crimp. Keep your balance and finish on jugs to the right. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
