A high concentration of moderate boulder problems are clustered around the South Parking area, Classic Rock among them. This is a good warm up area (or destination unto itself for moderate boulderers like myself) for the more serious routes that abound.

The rock is a square-shaped, tall boulder that leans to the north, the overhanging side the home of its namesake route "Classic Crack". Climbing options circle its girth.

This rock sees less traffic than the "star catchers" nearby, perhaps because of the aggressive and annoying vegetation that guard the rock.

Getting There 

Once you've located the Book Rock (above the Scenic Boulder, which is clearly visible from the parking lot. Or at least the chalk on Scenic Boulder is visible) take the rocky path leading northwest from the open book. A thuggish square boulder looms on the right. Follow the path around the north side to find Classic Crack hidden among the brambles.

Featured Route For Classic Rock
Classic VO face route starts from two obvious holes left of Classic Crack.

Classic VO Face V0 4  CO : Fort Collins : ... : Classic Rock
Just left of Classic Crack is an unknown V0 that has all the traits of the area (except maybe being highball). Starts off of two juicy good holes, with poor feet. First move is getting the feet off the ground and comfortable on the overhanging face. Then reach high above and find a killer sharp edge at arms reach. Cross and find another edge slightly higher. Gravy. Reach for the edge and heel hook to the top. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
