Climbers on the convenient Lower Bowling Alley spo...
This is a subarea created due to a complaint/suggestion to help reorganize the Bowling Alley area. This spot faces SSW and gets some sun although you can hide in the shade for some of the routes here due to the trees. This is essentially roadside cragging, but it can be quite convenient if you have a short window of time.

This route is located on the far right-side of the Bowling Alley, just right of a large, ponderosa tree fifty feet from the road. Climb up past two bolts and place gear in a thin crack. Make a dicey move left and clip a bolt in a small corner. Make some hard moves past the bolt and gain a good ledge. Fire up a short crack and reach a large ledge. Clip a bolt and make some cool face moves up to the anchor. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

The two bolted lines above the road are on The Fin. The left one is named The Fin, and the right one is called Curb Service. Curb Service is in the database.
