This boulder has potential for several problems of varying degrees of difficulty. It seemed fairly secluded for being right near the road. The only traffic I'd imagine is if people came up the south entrance to Four Blocks.

The quality is pretty good around the whole thing, minus the southwest corner which is the downclimb. The east face reminds me a lot of the Riggs Hill area with sharp crimps and black faces.

Getting There 

Park in the main Four Blocks area and head south up the hill. Kalty Block is a perfectly rectangular boulder that is right off the dirt road. From the main Four Blocks parking, it's a 5 minute walk. If you take the south entrance and head up the dirt road, you can drive straight to it.

Start in the middle of the east (black) face on some crimps. Move upward using crimps and a sidepull or two, depending on your variation. The crux is the first few moves, and then topping out is easy....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
