Solar System is a medium-sized boulder comprised of mixed rock. The landings that surround the boulder are generally clear and flat. Any ascent requires a short downclimb of the east face.

Getting There 

From the parking, cross CO Highway 141 to east, then head uphill on the north side of the drainage that divides the area. Upon gaining the bench, head north for a few minutes, and the boulder will be visible. Reference the page map for its exact location.
