Description 

Overhung on three sides, the Elevated Boulder hosts several hard classics and has the potential for many more.


Getting There 

From the meadow where the NCAR spur trail hits the Mesa trail, take the trail going west up Dinosaur Mountain. After a few hundred yards, you'll pass the fifty foot tall Cube Rock. Elevated Boulder looks like a UFO crashed into the side of the hill above the Cube. In another fifty yards or so, the trail passes just north of the boulder.

Featured Route For Elevated Boulder
Edging Edgio follows the left line.

This starts on a four-finger pocket with a nasty crystal tooth or on a sloper a few inches to its right. Pull on, then traverse right across big slopers to the right end of the big ledge. From the end of the ledge, climb out and slightly left on tiny edges to gain the top. It is steep, fun, and a little scary. (The incredible-looking sit start to this problem has not been done, despite visits by Fred Nicole, Paul Robinson, and other strong climbers.)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
