  • Be sure to park along the paved road, and NOT on the private driveways!
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Sit down start on the northwest side of the boulder. This is essentially the first problem you see as you get to the Monky Bars boulder. A few powerful moves will take you to a large sidepull jug, where you begin to trend left and up on small holds. The new bouldering guidebook gives this a V6, so that's what I'm going with.


    On the northwest side of the monkey bars boulder at the far east end of the Kraft boulders.

    Never liked the start of this thing- if you stand start off the big sidepull jug its a fun, yet challenging v5ish thing. This also avoids the subterranean groveling.
