This is a very sunny and kind of windy. The rock good on most of the rock, but some of it is really crumbly, so check before you climb.

Getting There 

Start at the Ute Valley parking lot. Then walk on the trail to the west. Hike up the ridge and you're there.

Where is this area? I find it hard to believe that the guidebook missed a bunch of three and four star climbs....

Is this some kind of sick joke? I can't find these boulders, and what's with the R and X ratings for 7ft problems?

Yeah Bob, this guy's full of shit. This area doesn't exist. Not sure why the moderators haven't deleted it.

This area does exist as I just climbed it yesterday. Though I didn't approach it from the trail. I approached from Rendevous Trail street and hiked up the to the top of the ridge using small foot trails.
