Description 

These are on the South side of Castle Mountain in an open meadow strewn with boulders. Bob Horan's Bouldering Colorado, Falcon Press, 2008 has a nice picture of the area.

Getting There 

From downtown Estes Park, take highway US 34 for 2 miles just past Nicky's Resort and Lodge. The meadow is on the north side of the road. Hike north on a faint trail for 100 yards to enter National Park Service land.

Bread of Life V6 7A  CO : Estes Park Valley : ... : Upper Boulder
This is a fight almost the entire way through especially right at the start. Make a few long moves with tenuous feet to get established on an okay rail with your hands, and then dig deep to finish. This is a classic face testpiece....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
