BETA PHOTO: Ephemeral Boulder's south face.


Ephemeral is a mid-sized boulder made of solid but sometimes sandy rock. The south face overhang and east face slab have potential boulder problems.

Getting There 

It is located at the southwest corner of the Blue Moon area. It's probably best to park at the Chinese Algebra area, pass through the green gate, head down hill, cross East Creek, make a right at the dirt track, follow the track for about 5 minutes, make a left up the wash, head up toward the canyon wall, and it will be on your right. Reference the page map for clarification.

From there, pull up to a left hand edge with thumb-catch, position feet, bump the left hand up to a sidepull, cross over with the right to a great pinch, work the feet, and finish straight up the jugs on top for the send....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
