BETA PHOTO: South face of Ornery Block.


Ornery Boulder is located just north of Up a Creek Boulder. The main face is south-facing, so it sees the sun during the day.

Getting There 

It's a small hike up to Ornery Block (relative to other road side areas in Nine Mile Hill). The quality is really good on the south face. If you park at the first pull off for Nine Mile Style, head southwest over the hill. If you park at the second pulloff, near the cattle guard, head northwest.

Sit-start with hands on two small crimps and a big heel hook with the left foot on the west side of the boulder. From there, make an unorthodox move to the prow of the arete and continue upward. The crux for me was getting the first two or three moves. This is just atypical for Unaweep bouldering.This is also the first problem on the video posted under the Nine Mile Style area. I just thought it was a good problem, so I wanted to share....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
