This is good quality sandstone in Unaweep! It has a beautiful arete line right in the middle of the Rock Garden.

Getting There 

This is a block fairly close to the parking area at the Rock Garden on the right hand side of the trail/road. It's a little bit back from the road, but it should be easy to find.

There's a picture to help out.

This is a beautifully sculpted arete in the middle of the Rock Garden. Start with a left hand mantle and a right hand pulling on the arete. Get a high right foot and make the move. Not a bad move, just not a move normally done in bouldering, at least in my experience. After the big first move, hug the arete and move on up!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

The Chiseled Arete Boulder has been torched. It looks like someone had a bombfire directly below the southeast arete. Unbelievable! Not sure how this will effect the holds on the sit starts, but I would imagine they're more friable now.
