Thanks for your work out there Jordan!

~Walk around the boulder from the trail (look for the stacked rocks as a marker) at the point described in the "location"). Follow the long vertical wall around the arête.

Once you round the corner arête, look right and you will see a small roof.

On the left side of this roof you will find a long vertical, thin crack. Stand start here.

Stand start crack and follow up through crack holds and adjacent hands and feet. Follow up the left side of the roof thought good hands to top out on top of roof.


At the very end of the LRT (if you come down from the upper lookout past the MOW) this will be the final area before the loop is finished and you are deposited back to your car.

Alternately, if you simply hike downhill from the lower lot instead of hiking the normal loop starting at the upper lookout, this will be the very first area you come to, and it isn’t very close to the lot.
If you hike down from the lower lot, look for the Trails End Boulder which will be on the right and just off the trail. It is egg shaped on the downhill side, and 10 feet off of the trail. At this point, you have passed the Colorado Boulder by a few feet, so turn around, walk up the trail a short way and look to your right.

The Colorado Boulder is easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it even though it is massive. it faces away from the trail.

Look to your right and you will see a vertical, long, tapered wall that increases in size the further away from the trail you go. The majority of the problems are around the corner from here on the back of the face.
