Description 

One of the best boulders in the area. The other boulders in the area are generally surrounded by trees but the Air Jordan Boulder is in direct sunlight plus you get a great view of Pike's Peak behind you.

Getting There 

From the parking lot mentioned for the boulders, head into the wash/creek bed and find the faint trail on the right side. This heads uphill and past the dinosaur boulder which looks like a boulder smiling with teeth. Continue up the trail past several other boulders and you will come to a fire pit. Stay on the trail heading down and then up another small hill. Once past the fire pit the boulder is approx 70 yards straight up the hill.

Just off the sit start.

V3 aka Big Air V3 6A  CO : South Platte : ... : Air Jordan Boulder
The V3 is located on the right arete of the west face. Crux comes high on the topout. I find the throw from the crack to the bomber jug on the arete amazing. Edit: After climbing this again this spring I think the crux is actually the move out of the sit start and not the topout. Beta: From a crossed hands sit start make a fairly large move with your right hand and hit the crack on the right, then bump about 1' higher to the upper part of the crack. Sweet Moves!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
