BETA PHOTO: One small segment of the Main Boulder's east face.

Description 

Anyways, this massive boulder has many problems on it and the rest of the area around it has great potential. The entire east face (all 60 or so feet of it) is lined with great landings and good holds, just to be topped off with an awesome downclimb on the other side. So, no need to worry about how to get down from this big guy.

I'm gonna get a map made up soon for this area.


Getting There 

This boulder is a littler harder to get to than the main Chinese Algebra area. Instead of heading down the trail after crossing the creek, you head up it. Moving your way up and through the brush to a clearing. From this point, you'll follow an game trail that heads through the open field towards the base of the cliff (west). Wind your way along the trail - don't give up, keep going - and you'll hit it sooner or later. The entire area has many big blocks with a lot of good climbs on them.

Weeperhorn is the little mountain, the problem climbs a great looking piece of chocolate sandstone over a perfect landing.Sit start with a left hand pinch and a right wherever is most comfortable. From there, make a move out right to the crimp, buckle the heel, fall into the left hand sidepull, bump up to the right hand crimp, match a left heel on the sidepull, crank up, and hit the huge shelf out right. Make a few other easy moves, and top it out.The move to the shelf is likely the crux. Deci...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Once you see this boulder on the trailhead up towards it... you'll cruise up and eventually hit an open "field" - follow the game trail until you hit the bouldering area.
