Another fine day in Morrison.

Description 

Another great spot to do contrived Morrison sequences!

This is a bouldering spot that is a bit more like caving than climbing. You have to climb down into a jumble of boulders to get to the start of the lines.And you have to be careful not to drag your rear over the same rocks as you climb up.

On the plus side, there are a couple of cool sequences you can do, and you can come up with half a dozen variations by declaring various eliminates.

All the problems would fall in the V0 to V3 range, unless you get really crazy with eliminates.


Getting There 

The Cockpit lies about 15 yards right of the tree slab, roughly midway between Nautilus and the Lobby.

Look for chalk and climb on down into the Pit.

The Cockpit Roof Right V2-3 5+  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : The Cockpit
This line starts at the bottom of the Cockpit, just like all the problems here. To do this problem, climb the roof right of the crack (the crack itself is off and is out of reach if you are doing the problem I'm describing). The problem involves a big left hand reach to a good edge under the roof, then a right hand reach over the roof, then a left hell hook to get higher up. Finishes with an awkward mantle/standup over the roof. Probably V3 as I've described it, although V2 might be a possibi...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Correction: I meant to say that this is 15 yards to the RIGHT of the tree slab, not to the left.

This was always a good place to boulder. Every day I would excavate a few more rocks and it got deeper and deeper! Maybe some of you have continued the project. It seemed that it could go on for ever.
The Cock Pit became twice as long as when I found it, Maybe it's three times by now.
