Rib Cage is likely the largest boulder at the Late Bloomer area. It has several problems located on each of its four sides. The rock quality is good, and many of the landings are fantastic.

Getting There 

It's located in the Late Bloomer Area. It sits at the far northern section of Late Bloomer's cliff line. From the parking area, follow the foot path up the hill, then veer left along it in a southwesterly direction. Continue on the path heading toward the cliff band. Reference the page map for clarification.

Start down low in a sloper hueco like pocket. Make a series of moves up to the crux where you hit 3 razor sharp crimpers. Move with surgical precission through these crimps up to a fun topout.Hope your crimp strength is up!!In my opinion, this is probably one of the best lines in this canyon....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
