Description 

Stays sunny throughout the day. All very course granite with good edges and good friction. Parking can be a problem, there is really only one actual parking spot at the end of High Drive. Located on RMNP land.

Getting There 

Turn onto High Drive off of US 36 the boulder here is straight up from the "2801" sign up on the mountain behind the houses. Plenty of other boulders all along the hillside (near the teepee, too). The approach isn't awful, lookout for the cacti though!

Climbing Season

For the Estes Park Valley area.

Start low on the left on a good shelf. Has really good feet down low. There could be a route that moves straight up the outside arete but we tried to incorporate the 3 good edges on the main overhanging face. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
