Description 

The Burnt Orange Boulder is only briefly mentioned in Benningfield's guide under the Lone Star Area. I'm referring to it as The Burnt Orange Boulder simply because that's how he aptly described it.

It hosts a good V6 traverse and a few up problems, all of which face west. Morning shade, afternoon sun. An incipient crack splits the middle of the boulder and a small left facing corner is immediatly left of that. The landing is good.

Getting There 

The Burnt Orange Boulder is about thirty yards down and north of the Pocket Wall, only 20 feet above the trail.

The obvious small, left-facing corner just left of Incipient Orange. I admit, I haven't done it but that's because there were bees flying out of the crack...but it looks pretty good, another good warm up....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
