BETA PHOTO: Grandissimus' south face.


Grandissimus is one of the large blocks that sit to the south of the parking area. The rock quality is mixed, and landings are as well. Several problems exist on the south and east faces. In addition, there is a very impressive project on the boulder's north facing overhang (I'm not aware of a send on this one, correct me if I'm wrong).

Getting There 

It lies no more than 40 yards southeast of the parking area. Reference the page map for its exact location.

Assume The Position V4 6B  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Grandissimus Rock
Assume The Position climbs a slightly overhung face on decent rock over a good landing. The rock quality is sandy, but it holds where it counts, and the movement is worth a visit. Sit start with a left hand jam, a right hand edge on the diagonal rail, and tricky feet. From there, move to the shelf, follow to the next good shelf, reach a crimp, set a heel on the shelf, pull up to some sloper edges at the lip, top it out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
