Description 

This is a lonely boulder at the Hell's Hole Trailhead on West Chicago Creek Rd. near Mt Evans. The problem of interest here is the classic slab problem Laying in Wait. There is a short V1 problem to the right of Laying In Wait, but besides that, there are no real moderates here for a warmup. It is best to warmup elsewhere, possibly at Three Sisters in Evergreen or at Morrison.


Getting There 

From Idaho Springs, follow CO-103 south as if you are driving to the summit of Mt Evans. After 7 miles at the big hairpin before the road begins climbing more steeply, turn right onto West Chicago Creek Rd. Follow this road for 3 miles to its end at the Hell's Hole Trailhead. The boulder is just to the northwest of the parking area.

Laying In Wait is a unique boulder problem in that it is truly a hard slab, which to some boulderers may be their worst nightmare. It is also utterly classic with some commiting moves high off the deck. Climb the obvious scoop/slab using pockets, slopers, arete features, and some non-existent feet to the summit of the boulder.You will want cool conditions for this one, so plan your arrival accordingly. In the fall, it stays in the sun until about 3pm.There are some pretty good videos out ther...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
