Description 

The Colorado Boulder was cleaned and climbed out for the most part in one quick afternoon sweep. Jordan Hill cleaned this boulder nearly by himself. Thanks for your work out there Jordan!

~Walk around the boulder from the trail (look for the stacked rocks as a marker) and follow the long vertical wall to the arête.

When at the arête, find the two obviously positioned holds, just screaming to be started upon (2 in-cut oval crimps). Climb and follow the arête, and break left with the roof. Traverse the roof's lip to top out over the middle of the roof itself.




Location 

At the very end of the LRT (if you come down from the upper lookout past the MOW) this will be the final area before the loop is finished and you are deposited back to your car.

Alternately, if you simply hike downhill from the lower lot instead of hiking the normal loop starting at the upper lookout, this will be the very first area you come to, and it isn’t very close to the lot.
If you hike down from the lower lot, look for the Trails End Boulder which will be on the right and just off the trail. It is egg shaped on the downhill side, and 10 feet off of the trail. At this point, you have passed the Colorado Boulder by a few feet, so turn around, walk up the trail a short way and look to your right.

The Colorado Boulder is easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it even though it is massive. it faces away from the trail.

Look to your right and you will see a vertical, long, tapered wall that increases in size the further away from the trail you go. The majority of the problems are around the corner from here on the back of the face.
