Description 

This is the largest boulder on the east side of Riggs' Hill. It's probably the largest boulder on the hill in general, at least where climbing is concerned.

It's the main attraction at Riggs for a lot of people, due to its easy approach and gobs of problems. The rock is generally good but does suffer from some chipping...never the less, there's plenty to play on.

Getting There 

Parking in the most eastern parking lot, head straight up to the boulder slightly west of the lot. From the other, more slightly west parking area (but still before the Central area), move up and right toward the boulder. It's impossible to miss if you're in one of those two parking areas.

Petoria V4-5 6B+  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Diamond Boulder
Start on the sidepull about 8 feet right of "Pull Around This," and work your way up with a series of crimps and akward-positioned feet and haul your body above the slight roof and top out.I had to clean some choss out of the start, so I figured nobody has climbed it before. Also, it wasn't listed already on mtn project. If anyone knows about an FA on it, please tell me!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
