Fun mantle over the lip and you're done.


A beautiful 15' granite block sitting in a grassy field (great for picnics...) overlooking Buena Vista and rugged Collegiate Peaks. Great landings, at least 4 fun problems and only 2 minute approach if you drive.

See Midland Getting There for driving directions to the pullout. The Aerial Photo/ map marker is directly on the boulder.
