This as only one boulder, but it as great problems going from B5.8 to V6. There is a ridge above this boulder to do some toproping. This place is always going to be in the sun unless you go early in the morning. There is no one there ever which is nice.

Getting There 

From the mileage junction near the Dixon Canyon Dam, drive south around a curve, for four tenths of a mile to a gate on the right side of the road. Behind the gate is a sailboat -shaped sign that reads "Sail and Saddle". Park along the road and head downhill on a faint trail to the northwest.

Climbing Season

For the Horsetooth Reservoir area.
