Work your way up the crack on the right. I like to pull left and get a nice breath on the ledge before commiting to the top, but it's not necessary....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

Hello Jason,
When several of us were putting up lines around here back in 1999-present this block was called "The Blockheads." This block has some nice lines, some of them are nice and tall to boot. A good spot to warm up before heading down to the "Energy Wall."

Right on Luke, I just saw that you added a bunch of stuff. I have no idea if you or Pat found it first but I know (the shoulder boulder) that's what he's refering to it as.

I would change it, but I have no idea who's correct so we'll keep it as is for now. Thanks for adding to it.

That's fine with me. All I am aiming for, just as you are, is to consolidate the names of these boulders and boulder areas of the Sisters. So, right on. Hey we have still got to go climbing together man!!
