Comments: I bouldered with Springs locals who did a lot of the FAs here, and they called this the Dinosaur Boulder. Not to be confused with the Sleeping Rock, which kind of looks like a dinosaur. We climbed three different lines on this boulder.

Comments: Note, this route is not 12 pitches, as indicated. Also, if my 60m rope is cut a little long (I haven't measured it) the route is 110 ft at the most. If you lower with a 60m, you can climb down the poison-ivy covered tree to get down the last few feet.

Comments: This route is not the one locals call Beach Ball--that is Ivy League. It's the one with the roundish bouldery protrusion. And it is easier than this one, Poison Ivy.

Comments: The first pitch can be top-roped with a 70 meter rope.

Comments: So I was always told by locals that the dome above Ute Pass, which I'm seeing called Barney's Dome, is called the Throne. I went up there around 2002 or so to climb it. The obvious line (the dihedral) is around 5.10, the crux is a roof move w/an RP as your last piece. It was a bit lichen-y.

Comments: Hey Blake,
I led it on gear. I used cams and tri-cams, and one nut down low. Nothing bigger than a number 1 camalot is necessary. It was even funner than usual!

Comments: The creek crossing is PARTICULARLY slippery when the water is up. Be careful. And don't have your smartphone in your pocket.

Comments: At some point since I did it last (ten-some odd years ago) someone has put in a pin about 10 feet up. I would be curious to know if someone has fallen on it: it faces right, the direction of the fall one would take if you didn't make the first clip.

Comments: I made the second ascent shortly after Lee showed me how to do it. The Hayman fire did not affect this boulder.
