BETA PHOTO: The U.S.G.S. Boulder as seen from CO Highway 141.


U.S.G.S. is huge, and has a handful of high quality boulder problems that climb over perfect landings. The rock quality is great. Any ascent requires a downclimb of the south face, or a seven foot hop down of the north face.

Getting There 

From the cattleguard parking, head ~75 yards north and you'll run into the boulder on the east side of CO Highway 141. It lies no more than 25 yards off the highway.
