Description 

This is one of the best boulders that I've come across in Unaweep. It is found up past the Flyco Boulder about 40 yards below the cliff.

Getting There 

Head past the Flyco Boulder towards the cliff band.

Per Nick Reecy: from the Gunny Gold Boulder, continue on the footpath in a northerly direction and enter the Pink Floyd area. Pass the Entrada, Guidance, and Clevis Boulders. Soon after, you'll reach a huge boulder (one of biggest in the canyon), follow the path along the boulder's east side. At the northeast corner, leave the path and head almost straight north for about thirty yards, and you'll see the boulder's south face.

This is one of the most complete problems in the valley. There is a little bit of everything in this guy: pockets, crimps, big slopers, pinches, and a dyno to top it all off. The line goes up and right and incorporate's a large jug FAR RIGHT after the series of crimps. From here, move up to the apex of the boulder and top out...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
