This boulder is hard to miss. It is on the right side of the road and its large overhanging face is very impressive. Probably some of the best sandstone in the canyon. All the lines on its east face are classic!
From US Highway 50 (going towards Delta from Grand Junction) turn right onto CO Highway 141. Follow this for about 3 miles until you see the Fossil Boulder, (hard to miss) a large, pyramid-shaped boulder on the right. Either park here or continue up a ways. Either way, the plethora boulder is on the right hand side of the road 75 yards south of the Fossil Boulder.

Quickly descend off the south face so you can do another lap!Variation: Start a few feet to the l...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado

I uploaded a new beta picture trying to recreate the old one. Probably not as accurate and useful, but at least it's something!
