Description 

These are basically three boulders resting against each other. There really isn't any other rock up there, which is cool. The boulders are very aesthetic and the setting is very unique. It is definitely a cool place to spend an afternoon.

Getting There 

From Almont, take the dirt road (Esty Lane) all the way to the top of the hill and stop when you see the sweet boulders.

Per Terence: you can see the boulders from the road. They are about 25 minutes from the pavement, when you know where you are going. Go right at the first fork, continue up some switchbacks, followed by a left at the top of the switchbacks. Drive until you see the boulders.

Stand start in the rubble on a huge undercling flake. Move up to a good sidepull. Then move out right to a sharp crimp pocket and bump again to a decent crimp gaston. Fall in, then cross to another good crimp. Go right again to a good rail. From the rail, make a series of big lock-offs to alright pockets. Once you reach the highest left hand pocket, bail right onto the juggy arete. Top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Hell of a drive. Cool spot with a great view.
