Although not quite the quantity and quality as the Main area, you will find plenty of good problems here too. They include Snake and the Skewer, Shotput, and Everett Overhang.

Getting There 

Hike up the Arthur's Rock trail until you reach the bouldering access trail, perhaps 20 minutes. Head up this trail passing the Fog That Surrounds area. Pass the trail that descends to the Warm Up Wall. Shotput will lie directly off the trail on the right. Shortly past this a trail will lead uphill (right) to Snake and the Skewer. To the right of the Snake and the Skewer are the Little Boulder and the Wilford Boulder. Back down on the bouldering access trail, past the trail to Snake and the Skewer, you can find the Black Beauty Boulder - just a little off the trail. This is followed by the Gill Boulder, immediately off the trail, and finally the Handcrack Boulder where you will find a few nice moderates -- Southeast Arete, Handcrack, Onsight, and the Everett Overhang.

Shotput V7-8 7B  CO : Fort Collins : ... : Snake and the Skewer
Starting on obvious underclings at chest height, make a big left move to an obvious "shotput" pinch. Then roll right delicately on crystal crimps to slopey notch arete and up.A bomber foot block immediately above start broke recently. Now it is harder for the grade and potentially height-dependent but very do-able....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
