This is one of the first boulders off the trail heading into the Dinosaur Head bouldering area. It is a good warmup boulder that holds 3 problems that I know of.

If anyone knows of an actual name for this boulder, please let me know, and I will change the generic "Boulder A".

Getting There 

Once you pass the Dinosaur Head boulder you will head downhill just for a quick second and start heading back up on the trail. Once you begin to head back up hill give it about 100' and look to the right for the boulder listed in the photo. You will easily notice the triangle shape on the right side.

A great little warmup on the right hand side of boulder A. The triangle shape rock is where this problem is located. Sit start on the crack, step up on the point of the triangle and find the good holds above to top out. I don't feel this is a good beginner problem since the landing off the right side is terrible. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

There is a really cool problem just left of the V0 that seems like it has been somewhat overlooked. It starts in the undercling and goes out left to the arete where you match and bump to a jug. Felt somewhere in the V1-V2 range to me....
