Description 

This is a small crag with about 10 routes in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley area. Its submission was triggered by a reorganization of the Boulder Canyon section. The original route here was The Hard They Come, 11 by K. Lugbill & C. Newmann back in 1980. At one point, this was an area to head towards, to get away from the crowds.

L->R:

A. Granby, 9, 1p, 35', bolts.
B. Armor Plated, 12, 1p, 30', bolts.
C. Dozer Rage, 12+, 1p, 50', bolts.
D. Blue Flame, 11+, 1p, 30', bolts & gear.
E. The Harder They Come, 11, 1p, 40', gear.
E1. Barn Dancing, 12-, 1p, gear & bolts.
F. Sweet Pea, 10, 1p, 40', gear.
G. Burned Toast, 11, 1p, bolts & gear.
H. Low Heat, 7, 1p, gear.

Getting There 

Find this as a small crag located above the Tungsten Mine Shaff cliff. Park as for Practice Rock. Go up & R of Practice Rock, passing under The Bowling Alley area, an around the L side of the Tungsten Mine Shaft cliff.

Burnt Toast 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : The Lookout
It's easier than it looks to make the first clip, but bring a small cam or a stick clip if in doubt. Make a fun, rising traverse left with small holds until you reach a nice rest stance on the arete near the 4th clip. The crux is pulling onto the upper wall, and the last clip could seem tough for shorter folks....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Granby: a 5.9 route (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Climb a short, right-facing corner to a roof. Hand traverse left around the roof, past first bolt, to a mantle onto a small ledge, past a 2nd bolt. Climb easy moves to finish. (FA: Mark Rolofson and Mary Reidmiller, 2004).
