We'll post more on this as we learn more, but the Black Wave Area is about a mile past Bone Park. There's a pull-off on the right hand side. Follow the trail to a good chunk of boulders. The first boulder you pass will be the Brain Boulder. While this may not be traditionally a part of the Black Wave Area, it's close enough to group them all together.

Getting There 

Go past Bone Park about a mile and park in the pulloff.

Per Nick Reecy: the area is more than 2 miles from Bone Park. This area can be accessed from four pullouts, they are located between 6.9 and 7.3 miles if approaching from the intersection of US 50/CO Highway 141. The pullouts are located on the west side of CO Highway 141.

Nonplussed V4 6B  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : T8791 Boulder
Nonplussed is one of the best compression lines I've climbed in the Unaweep area.Sit start with a left hand pinch and a right hand on the arete. From there, slap the right hand up the arete, bump the left hand up to a sidepull, bump the right hand up the arete, bump the left hand up to a sidepull, reach the jug lip, match, traverse slightly left, throw a heel on, reach an edge, and top it out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
