Park at the obvious Capstan Rock and head across the road and downhill for a few feet to a long wall coverd in pockets with a small boulder next to it that resembles a golf club.

The Consideration V4 6B  Colorado : Boulder : ... : Cloud Shadow
Begin on the good hole on Contemplation, use this for your left hand and make a big move up to a good large edge. From here, cross over with the left hand to a bad crimp, rearrange your feet, and make a committing throw out right to a good, left-trending rail. This is a good classic problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

This rock has a some fun problems and is usually much less crowded than other areas on Flagstaff. Plus it sits in the shade in the afternoon, making it great for after work or class.

This area is usually cramed with dreadlocked bystanders and plenty of people jumping to share their triumphant tales of perilous danger...but other than that, there are some truly classic problems on this wall.
