The northernmost freestanding boulder at Rotary, Pitch Penny Boulder offers a handful of fun, moderate problems with soft, sandy landings. The south face of the rock is very well-featured and presents a significant number of short lines in the V0 to V1/2 range, depending on one's choice of eliminates and contrivances. The west face, a bit smoother, holds a few more tech-y problems that are a nice step up from the fun warm-ups on the south face; catch Penny Pincher on a cool, cloudy day and you're sure to be rewarded by fun movement and position on very small holds - on a sunny summer afternoon you'll grease off this problem like you just finished eating a Wendy's Classic Triple and forgot your chalkbag.
From the trail that leads around the south end of the ridgeline, walk north past the Cat's Eye Face, Ship's Prow, and Mental Block, following the well-worn trail as it eases downhill on it's way to the south end of the Penny Boulder. This path continues down to the reservoir, so don't be surprised if a few dogs or sight-seers pass by as you enjoy the sunny, well-featured rock.

Variations include double dyno, static lockoff via fingerlock in rail, and lunging from lower down on the SW arete to the top. Drool....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
