Description 

Turd Boulder is behind the North Shelf Block. Nicely overhanging problem moving up from left to right. Fun moves, possible variations. Watch your landings...not sure how it got its name.


Getting There 

Hike through the "V-notch" to the left of and above the North Shelf Block then follow a faint trail 50' to the south.

Swing legs out right and heel hook, then throw straight up to a good knob. Pull in with the heel and crimp hard on a tiny edge for the right hand, then make a committing move (even though only 2 feet off the ground there is a rock just behind your back that you don't want to pop off backwards onto) that involves moving the left hand off the knob ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
