Three lowball boulders comprise this area. Fun and definitely worth a stop if you are driving by and want to climb for a half hour. Several overhung stand alone V0-V3's are available with many eliminates and traverses possible. Beware of pole dabbing!

Stop at the I-70 exit 224 east bound rest area and look to your left just past the bathrooms. Super low boulders that climb better than they look. Flat landings.
