Description 

Falls Area is a general name given to a large area that is centered around the Falls Parking Lot (the main parking lot to access Central City and most of the East Canyon Rim sport-climbing).

Boulders are extremely sparse in the area with a few lonely blocks sitting here and there. The area for purposes of classification on Mountain Project extends West across the road near the Cliff-Base trails and North as far as Cave trail. This would also include any blocks that sit south along the Falls Spur trail and in the streambed (which there are a few quality climbs nestled in there).

Getting There 

Park in the Falls parking lot, and follow the specific directions to the boulder you want to visit.

Right To Left Traverse V1-2 5  Colorado : Denver South : ... : Morning Wood Boulder
Back in the late '80s, I took Ranger Bob up on an invite to cruise some of his favorite boulders around the West Entrance area. Morning Wood is not a destination rock for any serious boulderer, but it is close to parking and offers several fun problems with mostly pockets. I've used it as a warm-up before shooting downhill straight east to the Dungeon or Nine Lives Arete. The V1 traverse is best from right to left. In addition, there are several pocket-pulling top-outs, the thinnest one is maybe V3...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
