L to R R to L Alpha
This is a relatively newly bolted crag just east of Practice Rock. Somebody went bolt-crazy on this rock, but the result is very well-protected routes. It's a steep dihedral; the east face is a solid slab, while the west face feels inverted and a little more crumbly. With a 60m rope, there's a great belay station with a nice rock as a bench. This is section contains the bulk of the routes on this crag.
At 8.1 miles from the entrance to Boulder Canyon (the first bridge you cross - see Yahoo! map) there is a small turn off. It's on the right side, just below practice rock, about 300 yards past Boulder falls. The crag is about 50 yards east and 30 yards up the hill from the parking lot.

Frothing Green 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c CO : Boulder Canyon : ... : Main Crag
Frothing Green starts just right of the tree that is left of the central cluster of routes on the main wall. Run up on intermittent blocks and ledges. The line finds the best continuity on a wall otherwise disrupted by frequent ledge systems. A few spicy run-outs on jugs leads to a technical slab for the last 30 feet of the line. The slab is fun and can be done so as to pick up a jug haul arete for the last 15 feet. I did not detect any manufactured holds on this route....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
