Description 

Nice bouldering all along the Bear Canyon Trail. Mostly covered by the usual guidebooks. The streambed tends to be shady, while the slopes of Dinosaur Mountain/Nebel Horn can provide sun or shade.


Getting There 

Bear Canyon Trail from Bear Mountain Drive or NCAR.

The approach is 40 minutes +/- but not too much elevation gain compared to other approaches in the Flatirons.

This an obvious trailside dihedral. After failing at the lip for many years, I came down it on a rope to clean the upper slab. Judging from the amount of moss and lichen on all the upper holds, it's been a long time since its been ascended....much better now. Go do it!Apparently this has been done with 2 different exits. We moved right up the arete to a good, right-hand, finger bucket to top out. The other exit would involve going straight up the face on very bad holds...this version seems ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
