Description 

Some folks know this as The Snowstorm Boulder; however, Tom Hanson (local authority) indicates the name should be The Gathering. This boulder is located in the Creekside Boulders. It has some V0-V4 problems.

The classic here may be Mono-opoly, V4.

Getting There 

It is in Creekside Boulders. These are located on the west side of the creek slightly south of the middle of the park. This is sort of a triangular-shaped boulder.

Begin your ascent over the lip using crimps or work your way right to top out the same as Lady Luck. The crux is similar to the others: getting over the lip and u...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
