We'll post more on this as we learn more, but the Black Wave Area is about a mile past Bone Park. There's a pull-off on the right hand side. Follow the trail to a good chunk of boulders. The first boulder you pass will be the Brain Boulder. While this may not be traditionally a part of the Black Wave Area, it's close enough to group them all together.

Getting There 

Go past Bone Park about a mile and park in the pulloff.

Per Nick Reecy: the area is more than 2 miles from Bone Park. This area can be accessed from four pullouts, they are located between 6.9 and 7.3 miles if approaching from the intersection of US 50/CO Highway 141. The pullouts are located on the west side of CO Highway 141.

From there, work two small crimps to your liking, and make an awkward dyno out right to a great jug. The remaining topout is straightforward....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
