Chalk Creek Boulder.

Closed until Oct. 1, 2014 MORE INFO >>>


A fun, but hard, dihedral start gets you up into some "decent holds", then up through the dihedral and out left to some fun ending holds.


This is on the back side of the boulder, it is obvious.


2 pads.

Buena Vista locals, and myself have been bouldering here for many years. The first ascent of this problem is unknown.

I second that; Rufus Miller showed me this boulder years ago, said he's been bouldering on it since they've owned their cabin up there. Probably mid '80s. This boulder sucks.

That's good to know, I really do not need the credit of the FA, I too have been going here since the '90s and had to do a TON of cleaning on the slab. That is the only reason why I thought it might have been the FA.

Cool and scary finish is to stretch out left near the top off the hold at the top of the dihedral.
