Description 

The Clipboard Area is the steep wall adjacent to the Dominator wall, so the routes on both walls can be easily climbed in one session. Three good sport routes (Clipboard (11b), Chairman of the Board (11d), and Dominator (10b)) and three trad routes (Stigmata (10a), Dom Perignon (10a), and Dominatrix (8 or 10a)) are all within close proximity.

Routes from L->R:

A. Chairman of the Board, 11+, 1p, 50', 6 bolts. Steep face & pockets.
B. The Clipboard, 11-, 1p, 50', 6 bolts. Steep face to overlap.
C. Stigmata, 9+, 1p, 50', gear & bolt. R-angling crack.


Getting There 

There are two ways to get to The Clipboard Area:

1. Climb up the talus field above the Tyrolean Traverse. A dirt path starts at the top of the talus. Follow the path uphill a bit until the trail splits. Continue up the hill on the right trail branch. You'll eventually reach a steep wall with a scooped-out face; this is the route Strange Science. Go left and climb up some big boulders to a flat area. The Clipboard Area is the steep smooth wall on the right. The Dominator wall is the overhanging, rust-colored wall just to the left. This is the most common approach.

2. Climb up the talus field above the Tyrolean Traverse. A dirt path starts at the top of the talus. Follow the path uphill a bit until the trail splits. Take the left branch, toward Tarot Wall. After about 10', a faint trail heads off right, up the hill. Follow this path uphill to a big tree at the base of the Dominator wall. Continue up to a flat area with a huge right-angle corner. The Dominator wall is on the left and The Clipboard Area is on the right.

Featured Route For Clipboard Area
Trying not to use the crack for the right foot. The crux is the next few moves: Move right from here, reach left over the bulge for the thin crack, step over the bulge, reach good hold.

The Clipboard 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Clipboard Area
The "sheer bolted face" mentioned in the "Another Unknown" (actually Dominator) description is a feature called The Clipboard. This is the middle of three routes. Left is a harder clip-up, and right is a finger crack with one bolt (Stigmata).The climbing is thin and devious, and it is a real struggle not to grovel right to the Stigmata crack. Nose to the bolts, it seems very stiff indeed. A TR can be easily set after doing Stigmata....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
