This is a large boulder off of Mesa Trail before the mouth of Eldorado Canyon. I'm not sure if this is named or documented in any guidebooks (that I haven't yet checked). However, this boulder is well-featured and great to climb upon. This boulder has numerous top out routes and a decent traverse.

Getting There 

Walk up Mesa Trail until you pass the first fork in the trail. From there, continue about 500 feet further until you reach a boulder on the right that is easily visible from the trail.

Climbing Season

For the South area.

The SW corner of this boulder has a bunch of fun variations on good rock. If you sit start and move up and right to jugs, it may be V1 (much easier if you start standing). The west side of the boulder has a few more easy problems....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado

I've been going to this boulder a lot over the last couple of years. I think it has a lot more routes on it than are listed, and I've been working on traversing the whole thing. Anybody have any more route info? It could also use a vigorous cleaning as a lot of holds are covered in lichen. I wouldn't mind doing it if nobody has any objections. Looks like somebody maintains the area a bit. Anybody been here recently?

Sounds sick, will definitely need to get out there before summer is over.
