Great boulders with some fun problems and potential for more. Bring lots of pads, some of the highballs have pretty sketchy landings.

This is on one of the best boulders of its grade in the canyon. Hidden around the corner from the Catslab, this roof boulder climbs with some thuggery and has an exciting finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

There are some sick boulders below the slab with some really good problems, did some several years ago. However, I'm pretty sure this area is still closed until Open Space has a plan for the area. Can't wait to climb these boulders again.

Thanks, Julie, on behalf of our group. And props to CC County taxpayers who ponied up $300K through our Open Space fund to go along with GOCO's $725K.

We can't invite the public onto the property until we get safe access established. That begins with the planning process that we'll invite the climbing community to participate in through our partners at The Access Fund. Thanks to those of you who continue to support them and the other fine conservation & recreation organizations around here.

It's probably best, then, to wait to add any more boulders until we have the clear to climb. Thanks.

Has any one done the arete climb on the left arete facing the road on the downhill boulder (of the two large boulders)? BTW, this area is open.
