This is an approximately 50' boulder in the northern area of the Humming Bird Boulders.

Eds. this is listed as Boulder #2 in the Karden 3rd ed. Summit Climbing Guide. There are at least 2 problems on it.

Start with a 5.10 boulder start into an easily avoided bush, it is easy place to nest two nuts together. There is a short runout section (5.8ish) to a bombproof #0.5 BD and a couple moves up to another bomber #0.75 BD to finish the overhanging crack system.

Getting There 

Montezuma Road splits from Loveland Pass Road, follow it until the road curves right after a long straight stretch, park at the first pull-off on the left.

The crux comes at the end, the overhanging crack system. The first placement is fairly high, but you can nest a couple small/medium-sized nuts together then a relatively easy runout with a small amount of groundfall potential that leads to multiple seriously awesome cam placements. Sack up and go for it....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Locate on this boulder is a V4ish traverse, Ante Up which is a horrible V6 and a project that is V10-12.
