The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Dave's original line begins on the steep wall matched on the head high and obvious jug. Slide left to a dreamy sloper (some do it via a crossover), throw a heel, and avoid tweaking your knee as you rock over onto the side of your foot for all its worth and reach for the sloping lip, eventually arriving in the awkward and slabbby dihedral above. From there, head up and left to get down. Another sequence avoids the knee-ligament tweakyness, but involves a frustrating dyno to the finicky sloping lip.


About 6 feet right of Bierstadt is this obvious line.


An Organic or two.

Easy or impossible body type is everything on this problem. Makes me believe that there is no such thing as grades.

I agree tcam ... if did not require a grade, I would not enter a grade for any of these problems.
