I believe this is THC.

THC V3-4 6A+  CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : The Three Sisters
This left to right traverse is on the north face of the northern-most Sister.The traverse angles upwards as it traverses right and the ground also angle upwards, so you never get too far off the ground, making for a nice safe problem.It has been years since I've been there, but I recall some interesting huecoed rock and fun moves.This is one of about a hundred problems I did back between 1999 and 2002 (rough estimate of dates).I think it is my favorite boulder problem at Three Sisters/Alderfer....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

There's some fun stuff here.

Please keep our impact to a bare minimum, be totally cool with everyone else that plays in this park, keep approach traffic on the paths, do not encroach on wetlands, & don't install any new fixed anchors without checking with the OS people.

There's some good climbs that have natural seams for trad & rope anchors if you wanted to play with some TR'ing & bouldering. It's a fun place with good scenery and fairly small approach commitments.

I agree, there is really no need for fixed gear here, as almost every formation can be downclimbed.

This is really a good place to scramble around on rock, which it appears has been going on for a long time. The beauty of the area is that you can go out and have a low key day on the rock in a spectacular setting and not be encumbered by ropes or rack and still get in some fun climbing.
