From the top of Meditation, when the Res was full....


Meditation Boulder is downhill and right from the Eliminator Boulder, perhaps 30 yards. This problem, to traverse the entire problem, no holds eliminated, is a great moderate problem. Most traverse starting on the easy East side fof the South Face and traverse counterclockwise around the boulder. Teaches one how to use one's feet, shake out after a pump, and packs in the moves. Among the separate cruxes divided by rests, in order one will encounter, are the thin crimp rail of the east face, the odd sloping (if one stays low) moves and seam of the north face, the technically complicated west face which becomes easier and easier as one wires the moves and learns the intricate balance, plus the final powerful traverse above the [south] roof.


Essentially a safe traverse if one stays low and within one's abilities. A few areas could use a spot, stay lower on the east and north faces.

Traversing around Meditation Boulder is an act of zen in itself. Good foot work is to be found here, everything from micro-edging to smearing along with slopers and crimpers for the hands. The top of the boulder is a cool spot to rest and kick back.

Such a classic route, if you come to Horsetooth you must do this. It has everything from cracks, smearing, jugs, edges, laybacks, no hands rest, overhang, etc... It is Ultra fun.

Make sure you brush off the chalk in the underhang before you do that, and remember to turn your feet and lay back on that right arm. It's a fun route and it gets easier each time you nail it.

This boulder could not be named better. I could do this traverse several times a day for the rest of my life and be happy.
