The Stash is home to some of the best bouldering at Hartman's. The rock quality is far superior than almost everything at the main area at the top of Kill Hill.

Getting There 

After driving up Kill Hill, keep straight where you would go left to reach most of the main roped climbing areas. Follow the road a few miles back past a fence, and look for a tight cluster of rock on the left with a large boulder in the shape of a shield (kinda looks like the pope's hat, too). That is The Stash.

To whoever put a bolt on the top of Birdman at The Stash,

Please remove this bolt. The problems on this boulder were all done ground up.

I know it can be hard to find info on things around the Gunnison Valley, so you may not have known that all the main features on this boulder had already been climbed. If you would like to toprope or inspect the lines on rappel, a ground anchor can be constructed on all sides of the boulder.
