Though small, the Nipple Wall is home to the focal point of north-end Rotary Park bouldering, a tall, balance-y problem, named for two nipplesque knobs that provide a nice spot to chalk-up for and scope out the crux sequence on the wall. Being well-removed from the main bouldering areas at Rotary, one can often hit the Nipple Wall on a busy afternoon and have a chance of working the problem alone. Another advantage of this little alcove is it's north-facing character - on the sunniest of summer days one can still coax reasonable friction out of the face.
Approach the Nipple Wall as for the North Slab, but don't stop there. Break immediately downhill through the ridgeline just before the base of the Slab, and hang a left around some blocks, heading south 15 or so yards to the base of a large corner; the right wall of this corner is the Nipple Wall.

Just south of the North Slabs sits a right-facing dihedral with a tall, broad, clean wall on its right. (It's the second corner S of North Slab, I think.) A fantastic balance line climbs past a few good crimps at the start, pinches a couple of "Nipples" and finishes on sloper dish-pockets. The rock really reminds me of Shelf. The crux is high, moving through the slopers. A good variation that I did "awhile" back is "The Radical Mastectamy": climb the wall without using the two nipples at all.V4/...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
