Hobo Boulder 

  • This is currently under construction as none of the problems have been sent yet. The problems named below are just approximations until we get a consensus on them.*

This overhanging boulder is south-facing and very secluded. You look down on the town of Keystone when looking south from the rock. There are a range of problem difficulties on this rock from VO to V9? There are various SDS and direct start problems. I will need some feedback on a consensus of the problems.

Getting There 

From I-70 in Dillon/Silverthorne, go East on US Highway 6. Just as you pass the Keystone sign, turn left onto Landfill Road. Go up the road exactly two miles (the road will pass a shooting range on the left and will then turn into dirt). At exactly two miles, you will come to a Y in the road, go right. Go about a half to three quarter of a mile. On your right is a trailhead called Incline Trailhead, but it is not marked with its name. Go about 150 yards on it heading east/southeast, then cut left off the trail and traverse alongside of the hill heading east. The overhanging boulder will appear about 125 yards east of where you cut off the trail.

South overhanging face.  The start to the problem, Don't Talk Trash To The Garbage Man, is on the bottom right of the boulder.

This is a SDS problem. The start is on the bottom right as you look at the overhanging face. There is a nice undercling that you can use in various ways to start, either as undercling, sidepull, or crimps. The feet start must remain on the large boulder. Keep them off the separate small rock that is below the boulder. Work your way up to two slopers then work left, staying off the top of the rock, and only using the slopers and meager crimps. After working left, you will then be positioned ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
