I'll go out on a limb and say the Ridge has the best bouldering in the GJ vicinity (not counting Unaweep, of course). There is a great/classic at nearly every grade up to V7 and potential for more hard, tall lines. Bring a brush and crew to spot you, some of these problems are tall and dangerous.
Once at the main area hike west up the big hill. Aim for the Isosceles Boulder and the hike is not too steep. At one point (2 yrs ago) the MSC kids had a Trail Day and cut a trail that started by the Easy Flake Boulder and went more or less straight up. Look for that, but it's probably in bad shape. We could use another trail day here....

Vodka Arete-Left V5 6c CO : Grand Junction area : ... : The Ridge
The Shacks' version of Cocaine Corner in Camp 4!! Vodka Arete is one of my personal favorites- though I've never sent the f*****. This is the curving, southeast arete that gets harder the higher you go.It can be done as a sit or stand start at roughly the same grade, but I recommend the sit start- it adds a cool sequence to get established on the arete....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
