Far down the hill from the main bouldering at Rotary Park, the Waterway Boulder offers a nice problem that you won't have to wait in line for, unlike some of the more popular blocks at Rotary. The rock is sharp, being worn by reservoir water when the level is high, but solid and with excellent friction and a nice, sandy landing.

Getting There 

From the trail that leads around the southern end of the Rotary Park ridgeline, break west on a good trail that heads downhill, passing the Talent Scout block and Punk Rock on its way to the shore of the reservoir. Waterway Boulder is a low block next to a couple large trees on the shoreline.

Start at the large jug near the water, and follow left uphill, use the large crack and jam to get you into the next section of the rock, then follow the ledge with sketchy feet and dyno to the last hold and up. This is a long traverse, probably one of the longest at Rotary. Not necessarily a very difficult route, but its just so dang long. The crux is the last move (the 21st), the rock is also pretty sharp, so be careful....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
