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.

An Indifference to Ascension V6 7A  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Diamond Boulder
This is a good line that starts in the alcove in the east face. The starting hold is on a double-match on a triangle hold. Then moves up right to a gaston and then fires to an intermediate left dimple and then resumes to a long left-hand reach to a crimp, then up right to a horizontal pinch and then continues up crimps to top out. A 2nd version of this problem starts the same and then follows the red line on side-angled crimps out the red line (in the beta photo), once the long reach to the crim...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
