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.

Now harder for grade, and potentially height-dependent, but very do-able....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
