This is a somewhat quiet and secluded area with several bouldering routes on a wall with bulges and blocky features. The wall lends itself to traverses. Vertical routes can be done but wouldn't top out unless highballing.

Getting There 

From Aspen, pass the Weller Campground, drive a short distance around a curve, passing a small pullout, and then park in another, better, right side pullout. Walk along the road uphill away from Aspen for maybe 100 feet to where the rock on your left breaks and there is a clearing and a road sign with a curved arrow. Leave the road and head uphill in the clearing, sticking to the left side and walking along some rock. Once at the top of this section, angle to the right a bit and walk over some slabby rocks.
