Description 

This is a very cubical boulder located smack on the middle of the trail. The rock is of high quality, but the boulder itself is quite small. Still it makes for a good warm-up on the way up the trail. Please be considerate of foot traffic on the trail, and be courteous to hikers passing through. It is very possible that other people have climbed here in the past and there may be existing routes or variations I am unaware of.

Getting There 

This is located only about a third of a mile from the trailhead. Literally it is impossible to miss as it is actually on the trail itself.

Climbing Season

For the Eagle/Vail/Minturn/Red Cliff area.

Start anywhere on The Cube, and circumnavigate the block. The lower you can stay, the harder it becomes. For full value, try not to touch the trees. If doing multiple laps, the top left corner tree can make for a great no hands rest....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
