BETA PHOTO: Zaftig's southeast face.


Zaftig is a small boulder with an overhanging southeast face. The rock quality is slightly sandy and friable, especially down low on the boulder. Nonetheless, there are areas of good rock where it counts, and the landings are clear and level.

Getting There 

This is located in the Mecca area. From the parking area, head downhill, cross East Creek, make a left at the dirt track, veer left shortly before the Birdhouse Boulder, and you'll find it along the crest of the hillside overlooking the beaver pond below. Reference the page map for the precise location.

Aperçu V3 6A  Colorado : Grand Junction Area : ... : Zaftig Boulder
Aperçu climbs a featured overhang via big moves over a perfect landing. Stand start with a left hand sidpull and a right hand horizontal edge/pocket. From there, snatch a big right hand at the lip, match a left hand at the lip, mantle onto the slab, reach a high seam and top it out.A sit start exists, but I opted not to indulge. As it really only added a few moves on the poor rock that exists under the boulder's belly....[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
