Description 

The Puzzle Box is a wide and beautifully faceted roof, horizontal at its base with a short headwall. Many problems and linkups exist including area standards Puffer Fish and Cosmic Tricycle. Rock is generally superb with some very interesting features. Caution: this roof has a sloping, uneven landing zone and some dirty topouts.

Getting There 

From the main parking area, follow a trail tracing the metal fence surrounding the aspen grove to the left. Continue into the side draw and the roof appears quickly, up the hill on the right.
