Driftwood is a large boulder with at least one problem on it. The rock quality is a mixed and so are the landings.

Getting There 

It's located in the Late Bloomer Area. It lies just north of the Rib Cage Boulder. From the parking area, follow the foot path up the hill, then veer left along it in a southwesterly direction. Continue on the path heading toward the cliff band. Reference the page map for clarification.

Start in a jug right on the lip coming up from an amazing (if it weren't chossy) cave. Basically campus into another jug, find a good foot (drop knee, toe jam, heel hook, wtv), and make an enormous move up and out left to a diagonal, left handed, crimp **crux**.Hold on and maintain tension, moving up to another crimp with your right, and from this point on - hold on until the top...V5 +/- once you get your hands on the larger crimps....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
