Watershed Boulder is on the left and Poolside Boul...

Description 

Right beside the Poolside Boulder, this secluded area is one of the most aesthetic in Unaweep. The quality on Watershed Boulder is solid but smooth as it appears to have significant runoff during the spring season and the rock is really smooth.

Getting There 

Park in the Pool of Plenty parking area and walk down the road about 10 minutes. On the left, there's a path to turn on to. Head down the path and into the pool area after about 5 minutes. Hop across the creek waterfall to the same location as the Poolside Boulder and look to your left. Watershed Boulder is short and sweet.

Climbing Season

For the Nine Mile Hill area.

Start with both hands matched on a sloper rail with a heel hook on the same rail. Crank up on the heel and head to the positive rail with a left hand. Match and top out. I gave this a harder grade than anything else I've posted, but it's definitely the hardest single move I've ever done in Unaweep. I'm sure it depends on your strengths and size as to how difficult it is....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
