The Parking Lot area is a small, initial zone of problems just a minute from the car. A small wall holds a handful of moderates, and another boulder holds a highball classic. Most climbers rightfully head on to the main areas. The lines are in the open, south-facing gully and are likely to be drier and warmer than most of the other mainly forested areas.

Getting There 

Head west from the parking lot, cross the small bridge, and turn left up the Arthur's Rock trail. A short walk up the gully and the Parking Lot Wall will be on your right. Five lines and variations from V0 to V5 exist here. The Voodoo Lady Boulder can be found a little further up the gully but is best accessed by hiking up the switchbacks until above the boulder. Hike a little past the boulder and walk back down the gully to the boulder.

This is such a perfect finger crack in the corner. It is another great warmup before you get to the main bouldering trail. Don't expect any feet, it's smear city all the way up. Just layback, walk on up, and bask in the beauty of this route....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
