Description 

From the Goose Creek trailhead, the happy climber may opt to leave behind the rope and tackle and head into this vast wilderness of pine and spruce forest and granite domes and overhangs for its limitless bouldering potential. This area will comprise a wide and diverse zone of hillsides and creekcut valleys. I will, and I will encourage subsequent contributors to create sub-areas to help categorize our very worthy findings. Please bring an adventurous and self-sustaining spirit to this area. There is good camping and swimming down by the creek. From a base camp enjoy the exploring and enjoy what you find.


Getting There 

From CR 126, driving toward Deckers, take FR 211 toward Wellington Lake. Before the road commits you to the lake, take a R and follow the Matukat Trail (still 211) to the Goose Creek trailhead. Park here and walk in with whatever it is you need.

A straight-on view of this lovely splitter. A triumph! A dream climb for this submitter.

There is a boulder, the size of a house, with one big, clean, flat face, just steeper than vertical, split by a fine, looming hand crack. The only thing tainting this incredibly clean, perfect crack is the stripe of guano coming out of it. I found nesting materials on top, though not an active nest.Use the leaning boulder to gain the good jams. For most men with decently big hands, the jams will be utterly perfect for the first 5/6 of the crack's height. It gets a bit unnerving right at the top,...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

I've backpacked in LCW before, and now I have a new reason to go back! There are seriously too many rocks to choose from. I'll try to map out new areas in the future and add to this page. A backpacking/bouldering trip you say?
