Description 

This is a small crag with about 10 routes in the Practice Rock/Bowling Alley area. Its submission was triggered by a reorganization of the Boulder Canyon section. The original route here was The Hard They Come, 11 by K. Lugbill & C. Newmann back in 1980. At one point, this was an area to head towards, to get away from the crowds.

L->R:

A. Granby, 9, 1p, 35', bolts.
B. Armor Plated, 12, 1p, 30', bolts.
C. Dozer Rage, 12+, 1p, 50', bolts.
D. Blue Flame, 11+, 1p, 30', bolts & gear.
E. The Harder They Come, 11, 1p, 40', gear.
E1. Barn Dancing, 12-, 1p, gear & bolts.
F. Sweet Pea, 10, 1p, 40', gear.
G. Burned Toast, 11, 1p, bolts & gear.
H. Low Heat, 7, 1p, gear.

Getting There 

Find this as a small crag located above the Tungsten Mine Shaff cliff. Park as for Practice Rock. Go up & R of Practice Rock, passing under The Bowling Alley area, an around the L side of the Tungsten Mine Shaft cliff.

Dozer Rage 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  CO : Boulder Canyon : The Lookout
Dozer Rage is a V6 boulder problem that could be bouldered out w/ enough pads and spotters. Anyway, this 5 bolt route is on the upper tier above the Tungsten Mine Shaft. It's about 30 feet left of the "The Harder They Come", which is the thin crack that diagonals left across the face, and immediately left of "Blue Flame", which is the 4 bolt line that starts right of the blunt prow -- see Rolofson's new guide (Volume II) for more details....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Granby: a 5.9 route (3 bolts and 2 bolt anchor). Climb a short, right-facing corner to a roof. Hand traverse left around the roof, past first bolt, to a mantle onto a small ledge, past a 2nd bolt. Climb easy moves to finish. (FA: Mark Rolofson and Mary Reidmiller, 2004).
