  • Description 

    This is a quality granite crag which faces west, southwest and is very much partitioned off by its neighboring cliffs below. There are approximately 3 established routes, one with a classic, right-leaning dihedral, a few top-ropes have been done on the left side of the wall. On its summit you will find a unique quality granite block with great boulder problems.

    Getting There 

    Drive up Boulder Canyon, past Boulder Falls for about 8 miles and park in the large pull-out on the right. On the left you will see the Mindshift Cliff and on the right you will see the Lion's Den. Hike the short, but steep gully, staying mostly on its right side between the two road side cliffs. The Law of Physics Crag sit above the Lion's Den and is obscured by it and large trees.

    This problem can be done as a sit start below the head wall, or to make it a grade or two harder, crawl back into the cave, kind of like the Bachar Cracker in Yosemite, and climb it as a low ball roof crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

    On the way to Bachar's Block, I found this problem -

    Take the gully to the left of "Law of Physics" Crag until you are parallel with "Mind Shaft Cliff". Make a right, between another abandoned mine shaft and a large pile of rocks, and walk about 200ft. It is directly on the trial. If you see Bachar Block, you have gone too far.
