Description 

Puce is a big boulder that is home to a high quality, east-facing undercut slab (depending on the spot) that sits over a great landing. There may be potential on north face as well, but the landing is rough.

Getting There 

From the parking area, head downhill on the foot path, cross East Creek, head uphill, make a right onto the dirt track, follow the track for a few minutes, then veer off to the right, and you'll find it. Reference the page map for clarification.

Exceptional Mediocrity V4 6B  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Puce Boulder
Exceptional Mediocrity climbs an undercut slab on some of the finest rock in Unaweep. The movement is awkward but well worth a visit.Sit start with hands matched on the obvious jug. From there, either crank up and mantle to the sloping edge above, or just crank up to the edge (this worked for me), then gather your feet, reach a left hand sloper, and finish straight up the remaining slab on good edges....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
