  • Description 

    This excellent boulder is located on the west bank of Lower Dream Canyon, at the base of the talus below the Plotinus Wall. The traditional access is via the Boulder Falls area. However be forewarned that this is technically illegal.

    There are multiple problems, including Freedom & Amendment, here in this idyllic setting.


    A. The Amendment, V10/11, 20'.
    B. Freedom, V10.
    BC. The Right via Freedom, V 13 PG-13.
    C. The Right, V 14 R.

    Getting There 

    More specific beta for locating the boulder. On the hike up to the Plotinus Wall (Lower Boulder Falls), there's a sizeable boulder at the base of the talus, just west of the creek with an obvious cave, facing south.

    The Amendment V10-11 8A  Colorado : Boulder Canyon : ... : Freedom Boulder
    The Amendment is just above Boulder Falls 50 feet from the waters edge and 75-100 yards from the falls. The problem traverses into an existing boulder problem called Freedom. Start on the left side of the boulder and traverse on bad slopers into Freedom. Finish Freedom. Freedom is rated V10, with The Amendment being more difficult, so the V10/11 grade is given. Maybe easier, may be harder than V10/11....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

    Anyone have the lowdown on the other problems on this boulder? There's a line of chalk up the back side and a bit on the arete nearest the creek. Curious if anyone knows what they go at?
