Notlim Boulder is home to what is arguably the most beautiful V8 highball problem on Flagstaff Mountain......and not much else. First climbed in 1975 by Bob Candelaria, Hollow's Way was way ahead of its time and is still today considered one of Flagstaff's finest test pieces. Evidently Notlim spelled backwards is a reference to the popular roadside Milton Boulder in Eldorado Canyon. Hollow's Way faces north and stays shady most of the day.

Getting There 

Park as described for the Capstan - 1.4 miles up Baseline (measured from the fire danger sign) at the hairpin turn. Walk across the road and uphill from the Capstan towards the Road Sign Rock (look for the drilled pockets facing the road). Continue heading north down the hill passing the Brown Glass Wall on your right. You'll see the Notlim Boulder off to the left just a little further downhill.

Hollow's Way is truly a must-do on Flagstaff for people bouldering V8 and up. It is a beautiful, obvious and slightly overhanging line away from the masses. Climbers from all over the world come park at Capstan Rock, slip down into the woods and quietly enjoy one of the best lines Flag has to offer. Although the name might suggest it was a Holloway problem, Rob Candelaria got the FA after - if my memory serves me correct - Jim showed it to him. Hollow's Way ascends the obvious yet very thin ove...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
