  • Description 

    This is perhaps the largest of the Eldorado Creek Boulders and offers a variety of classic boulder problems, most of which are highball (hb).

    Getting There 

    Drive into Eldorado Canyon and park. In low water, you can access it via Milton Boulder parking. Cross the river and take the trail down canyon to the boulder. Otherwise, park and hike up from entrance parking, cross bridge and hike towards West Ridge until on top off the boulder. See the topo, and make your way down toward the creek.

    This climbs out the east overhang of the block to its summit. The crux is height-dependent, although the mantle is a crux as well. From the ramp, one must compress out and get a tip fingerlock with the left hand, set into the lock, hold the lever, and one arm pull through and reach to the sloper shelf above. Then you must swing out onto the mantle shelf and mantle utilizing a small layaway crimper out left. Stand onto the shelf, and continue on easier rock to the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
