This is a singular volcanic boulder that seems to be a small remnant of a formation similar to the Cimarrons Range in the distance. It is a nice change in rock type to the vertical sandstone on the main cliff band. This boulder get some shade from its setting in the the pinyon-juniper forest. It has lots of juggy overhangs and tranverses. This needs cleaning, but it's apparent that many historical ascents have been done.

Getting There 

From the Ridgway State Park visitors center at Dutch Charlie, hike south on the gravel Nature Trail for 5 minutes. You can't miss it.

Don't let the name fool you. Lowered Expectations is named for its proximity to the ground, not your experience! (However, the FA beta did end up being a little easier than I first estimated.)Sit start with your butt in the dirt on two small crimps, the left with a nice thumb catch, and make a big move to a sloping rail. From here, keep body tension to execute a big dyno to a jug....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
