This boulder is hard to miss. It is on the right side of the road and its large overhanging face is very impressive. Probably some of the best sandstone in the canyon. All the lines on its east face are classic!

Getting There 

From US Highway 50 (going towards Delta from Grand Junction) turn right onto CO Highway 141. Follow this for about 3 miles until you see the Fossil Boulder, (hard to miss) a large, pyramid-shaped boulder on the right. Either park here or continue up a ways. Either way, the plethora boulder is on the right hand side of the road 75 yards south of the Fossil Boulder.

This is an excellent problem that isn't over until one has fully rocked over onto the slab. Start sitting with your right hand on the obvious blocky hold and left hand on a large edge. Make a desperate first move up to a sloper or pocket and then move up to good pocket, hold the swing and continue straight up the face to the sloping lip. It may be wise to check out the top out and figure out what you can desperately crimp on before getting here on the send....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
