Frank is a medium-sized boulder with a few problems on its east and north face. The rock quality is solid but sandy, and the landings are poor but can be padded well.

Getting There 

From the parking, cross CO Highway 141 to east, and head uphill on the north side of the drainage. At the bench, head southeast, and the boulder will be visible.
