Because this is South Platte, there are lots of boulders, but few are climbable. Scattered amongst you in about a 70 yard stretch, you will find a few climbs to do just for fun or a few hard ones to test you. All the holds on these problems are softer on the skin then the Satellites but not as soft as Joe's.

Getting There 

Park right in front of the big pine tree, and the boulders are about 30 yards to your right uphill.

Inganno V1+ 5  Colorado : South Platte : ... : The Parking Lot
Start with your left hand on a crimp in the top of the crack and your right hand on the small crimp-cling out right. Go up to the crimp and then the jug up right. Top out. This is only a 4 move problem but worth doing if you're in this area.I did this problem only, because it looked like a V4/V5 at the beginning, but it turned out to be super easy (hence the Italian name). Hint... right toe hook the start and go up to the crimp with your right hand not your left, match, then fire for the jug....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
