Description 

At least two solid lines on this boulder, with dozens of eliminates. The rock is solid and not as sharp as some of the other rock in the area. Good warm-up area.

Park in the lot right by the playground and walk north (away from the lake) across the road and its 20 yards north of the road. It's south face is overhanging with one large rail from right to left and a series of ledges/pockets on the upper left.

Featured Route For Playground Rock

Lefty Direct V1 5  Colorado : South Platte : ... : Playground Rock
Sit start on the two crimps on the left side of the overhang (they are below and left of the rail). Pitch up to the big pockett and go direct from there on crimps and shallow ledges/pockets. Pictures coming soon. (Don't normally rate routes so the rating may be off, its harder than The Railing)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
