Water Groove, the egg shaped 25-30 footer, is an intense V3 highball, that starts hard and eases up, but requires complete trust of some Hartmans knobs.

There is only 1 developed route on this boulder, but several possibly highball projects, similar to those in the Bishop area.

Getting There 

Drive up Kill Hill, park, look left to the egg shaped boulder, that is the Water Groove Boulder.

At the top of Kill Hill, park in the first area on the right after the cattle guard. You will see two grouping of rock, one to the right and the other to the left. Water Groove is located on the southwest corner of the right grouping. It basically looks like an egg balancing tip down on some rocks. A water groove ascends the south corner in an obvious well.. water groove. Good luck. I have yet to put this one together....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
