This a nice little Island located on the west end of the park. This area can be good all year round and at any time of the day. Here you will find a few gems, test pieces and cruisers to enjoy.

Most the rock is of good quality, and it never seems to be crowded. In fact, I feel it is one of the more overlooked areas at in the park.

Getting There 

Park in the 2nd lot on the west side of the park. Hike north across a big open field via "The Bluebird Meadow Trail" until you run into an obvious Island that features really cool low angle slabs protruding from its southern most tip.

The 1st six boulders, featuring "The Captain," will be viewable just out and slightly to the west of your eye line.

Climb the blunt arete on the western most side of the south end of Gilligan's Island. Start with you right hand in a good jug and you left on a small sloping crimp that has a crystal for your little finger. Toss up with your right to a bad sloper then get a heel hook up and right. Now you began the desperate journey to the top slapping and crimping small pebbles to higher but easier ground.This is a great line!! It is a must do in the area!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

I know that the photo beta is week but I am going to go out, hopefully this weekend, to get all the photo beta I need to finish posting all the lines that I know about. I still think I have about 100 more lines to post. I also know the locations of some new F.A. potential. If your down we could go check these new hidden lines and crush them!!!

Don't worry about the lack of photo beta at this time. I am working to make finding these lines as easy as possible. I just had to start some where. I think I added about 40 new lines today. Hope you enjoy. If you have any question please just contact me as I would be glad to help.

I think this is my new favorite place to boulder in Colorado. Thanks for all the great beta and photos. Finding the boulders and problems has been super easy. Great work, Mr. Childers.
