The Wave in the woods.
Slabby and crimpy, great boulder in the woods. You'll easily see why it's called The Wave, with the large curl at the top of the boulder.
Turn right at the Warmup Boulder off of the main path. This boulder is a few hundred feet straight up this path on the right, one of the only ones in this specific area.

Another one of the few classics of Skyland. Start in the center of the boulder. Traverse over to a large rail, head up and right, and dyno to the lip. Spotters and pad recommended. If your not used to granite, this one will destroy your fingertips nicely. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CO

Very sharp, crimpy, and delicate problems. This boulder stays wet for a long time, so not a good rock any time soon after a rain. Bouldering book I have puts most under V3. Grades are fairly light, IMO. All the face routes on this boulder feel much harder than V3.
