Description 

The bouldering here is not super classic but can add to the fun before or after your day at the crags close by. This area is also under-developed according to Ben Schmitt, so the adventurous type might have some fun out here. Flo-Storm (V8) is an area classic.

Getting There 

Head as if to The Plebian Wall. When the trail splits (below the Plebian Wall), head down and left to the boulders about 200 feet away.

Climbing Season

For the Elevenmile Canyon area.

Inganno V1+ 5  Colorado : South Platte : ... : The Parking Lot
Start with your left hand on a crimp in the top of the crack and your right hand on the small crimp-cling out right. Go up to the crimp and then the jug up right. Top out. This is only a 4 move problem but worth doing if you're in this area.I did this problem only, because it looked like a V4/V5 at the beginning, but it turned out to be super easy (hence the Italian name). Hint... right toe hook the start and go up to the crimp with your right hand not your left, match, then fire for the jug....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

I'm heading out here this weekend to hopefully develop some bouldering. I'll let you guys know what I find.

Awesome! I scoped out the parking lot area yesterday with no real avail. I remember getting lost once and finding some more boulders (don't know if they are climbable) down and to the left about 250 yards up and left from the parking lot (if you are facing the huge pine tree with the balancing rock behind you). The main area has already seen a huge development but might still have some hidden gems.
