Description 

This prominent boulder features mostly harder problems in an easy access location. This beautiful boulder is a must stop just for anyone in the area and work on some quality problems.

Sleight of Hand on the east face was featured in the bouldering movie: A Colorado Daydream.

Note: At the 1/2 mile mark there is free camping and some excellent camping spots just across the road from the fingerbanger boulder.


Getting There 

Park at the main parking lot and hike in for a little more than 1/2 mile. There is a 1/2 mile milage sign and just up the road for another couple of minutes sits the Fingerbanger boulder on the left side (south) easily seen from the road.

New video of Sleight of Hand being done. Wish the footage from Colorado Daydream of this problem was online as it is some great history.
