The north side of the Seurat Boulder, home to Rand...

The majority of these boulders are located within the Mt Evans Wilderness Area, which is regulated & patrolled by the US Forest Service. Climber MORE INFO >>>


Silverback ascends the right-trending rising arete from a stand start just right of a low crack (which is where Seth Allred's Chrome starts). Begin matched on high slopers and ride slopers up the arete until you can grab the apex and pull over. Originally V11, this problem is a consensus V10 that can feel easier when conditions are perfect.

Although I've given this problem 4 stars, I sympathize with the feeling that CLASSIC problems are generally not lip traverses. This is one of the rare exceptions to that rule.


Silverback is located on the north side of the Seurat Boulder, ascending a rising right-trending arete from a stand start to its high point.


A couple Organics and a spotter to slide them along.
