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 from the good slots in a crack with your feet on the green slab below. Trend up and leftward through a series of holds until you get to the loaf with a hold for the left and and sweet side-cling for the right. From here, continue to bump up the vertical sloper rails and walk your feet up until you can shoot to the namesake Cantalope Earmuff holds on the lip. Good feet high and left will help you to top out this problems that feels a lot higher than it actually is.


Approximately 50 feet left on "French Kiss." This is on the center of the face of next house-sized boulder next to the French Kiss Boulder.


A folded pad covered with two open pads is ideal. An attentive spotter on each side of the pads (2 spotters) is ideal, but if you only have one, have them be on the left side of the climber as they reach the lip.
