Description 

Central area of Riggs' Hill. Tons of desert varnished sandstone boulders.

I am not familiar with some of the problems here and have designated those I can't locate in "The Cluster." This is a section of boulders left of the main right trail in the central area. I'll update it as I can and as information becomes available.

Getting There 

Park in the main circular parking lot at Riggs' Hill. Most of the good boulders are northeast of the parking lot.

Late Night Diner V5 6C  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Mental Recovery Block
Start on the crimps (the same as you do on Dead Point) in the middle of the southeast face. From there, instead of moving upward, head around and under the roof, and gain some positive feet and hands to come over the lip.NOTE: I have not climbed this but was with someone who did. So if there is any info, let me know, and I'll update as needed....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
