Heart Boulder.


Similar rock to Penitente Canyon, but less climbed. Can be choss. Hot in the afternoons. Snowed in, but snow melts off boulders in winter, access with snowshoes.

Getting There 

Take Gunbarrel Rd South from Monte Vista. Eventually turns to dirt, take immediate right. Follow a dirt road back through a small canyon and over a cattle gaurd. Road takes a long 180 degree turn to the right; near the top of the hill turn left (High clearance). Drive till you see the boulders.
