The Black Boulder Rock Climbing
Aka: El Penasco Negro.
It is a huge, black boulder with a number of AMAZING, double digit projects. Currently the landings are not good, but we're working on it. You will get messed up if you fall, and you WILL fall.
The rock is very good and is mostly huge moves on small to very small sharp incut crimps, with poor feet, to butt-puckering top outs.
Eds. there were 2 projects entered previously for this area that were deleted upon request by the original poster.
This is a few hundred yards down river from the Graveyard Boulders up on the hill. It is huge and overhangs at a solid 45 degrees, you can't miss it.

A couple fairly hard moves at the lip will traverse you to the right so you can mantel the lip on pretty good holds.My preliminary thought is V10, but I would believe hard V9, maybe. The scare factor is hard to ignore....[more] Browse More Classics in Colorado
