Per Nick Reecy
: The quantity, density, and quality of the boulders found at Pink Floyd outshines all other areas at Nine Mile Hill.
For all purposes, Pink Floyd is the far west boundary of the Mecca Area. The boulders are those which are located at 6,200 feet below the canyon's west wall above the Mecca area.
The style of bouldering is predominantly vertical, but many slab and slightly overhung problems exist as well. The area is sublimely secluded from the highway that intersects the canyon and unlike Main Mecca, Pink Floyd's soil isn't nearly as nasty after becoming wet, and the canyon wall makes for welcome, early shade during late afternoons.
Classic boulders include Main, Weeperhorn, Dune, Megalomania, and Barn.
Per Nick Reecy
: from the Mecca parking area, go through the green gate (close it behind you), follow the foot path downhill, cross East Creek, head uphill, make a right on the dirt track, head north by northwest for a few minutes, make a left onto a well worn foot path, head west through a sage brush meadow toward the west canyon wall. The trail will eventually deposit you at the Main Boulder. At a brisk pace, you can reach the area in about 10 minutes. It is approximately a 0.5 mile, one way, to reach the center of the area.

From there, stick a right hand edge, follow with the left hand to an edge at the arete, bump the right hand up to the next edge, bump the left hand up to the great edge-rail, reach a right hand on the opposing arete, place a left heel hook, cross over onto the arete with the left hand, tic tac up the arete, and top i...[more] Browse More Classics in CO
