This boulder is probably the most popular boulder at Ilium (except for maybe the Sun Block). It has a great selection of problems, from slabs to overhangs, at all grades. It's a nice spot to start your day.


Getting There

It's hard to say what the crux move is. It seems different for different people. No matter what, it's a lot of powerful moves in a row. The move to the second good shelf can be a bit of a heartbre...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
