On the left side of the boulder starting on a sloping, right ledge and a sloping nose on the left. Right up to the sloping pinch then get your left in the undercling/pocket and huck for the jug. The problem is good 'till here.... I have done a really scary and chossy topout that I would only recommend if you have large balls!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Does anyone know what the double arete across the creek from this boulder is called?

I've seen it in another online guide listed as The Vanilla Ice Boulder. There is a V5 on the left of it (ice ice baby) and a V6 on the right (word to your mother).

Checked Front Range Bouldering and the picture does not match the climbs suggested by d. jables. Any other word?

Sorry, not sure what formation you're refering to then.

It just seemed that the photo from FRB wasn't anything like a double arete and if you look at where the numbers are posted in seems as if they are on the creek side, while the double arete is more on the terrestial side of the boulder.

I recall seeing a boulder with chalked up double aretes across the creek from the road with the aretes on the right side of the boulder, but that was further downstream....

That's probably it. Any ideas? Name? Grade? FA? I'd say around V7... Maybe?

Tcam, I know what boulder you're talking about, went to check it yesterday.... Cool prob, I'd say V6-7 is a good grade for it. Sick route tho....

And this is actually located across the road and slightly upstream from the Sex Cave.

Nice! I thought it was really high quality for CCC. Now if we can figure out what it's called....

Are you talking about the double arete that has a built up landing? If so, that boulder problem is called The Fridge (V6 or so). It was done first just a few months ago. I can't remember the guy's, who did the FA, name. I did the second.
