Description 

The Suzuki Boulder is right off Trail Ridge Road just under a mile in to the park from the Beaver Meadows entrance station. It is a good boulder for a quick session or as an addition to other activities in the park. Problems cover every square inch of the boulder and at its tallest it looms to 18 feet.


Getting There 

After entering the park at the Beaver Meadows entrance station, stay on Trail Ridge Road for about 0.8 miles. The boulder is obvious on the right and there is a pull out near it on the same side of the road.

I don't know if this has been done before, there are plenty of climbers in Estes more than capable of doing it, but I have never heard of anyone even trying it, so it might be an F.A.. or not. Regardless this is one of the best bouldering traverses around, and at 53 moves with nary a shake out before a no-hands stance, and 80 moves total afterwards, it is a great endurance workout/project. The movement is unique, varied, and memorable. This is an excellent traverse! I'm guessing low V9? Feels...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
