Skyscraper Boulder Rock Climbing
This boulder forms the approximate center of the Lower Chaos area and so is a good reference point for finding the other problems. Easy to find, it's the 30+ foot boulder by itself and in between The Gobot Boulder, the Centaur Boulder and the boulder with Tommy's Arete
and the The Automator
As far as I know, there are only two independent problems on the boulder and one climb with a variation.
Approach as for Lower Chaos. Since there are currently two options either 1) hope across the talus until you reach the Potato Chip Boulder. Keep going until you hit the Gobot Boulder and then turn right. Skyscraper is about 50 yards away from the Gobot Boulder (when looking away from the lake).

Get your right foot up and stand up to reach the lip. Whew.This climb has several stances though reversing the moves once one has gotten to the high stance is almost impossible. That said, not recommended for those without highball climbing experience. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
