Description 

If one ever does not have much time to drive to the mountains and needs a place just to give the fingers a small workout, this is your place. This is a fake boulder in a park that is about 10 feet high but has pockets, crimps, and jugs to practice on. A pad is not needed for the ground is a sort of bouncy cork, but a pad is still very nice. There are finger holds everywhere, so elimination is needed to create the problems best for your workouts.

Getting There 

From I-25 exit west on Bellview and take a left/south on Quebec St. Once you pass E Marin Dr. The drive to the park is your next right. You will see a big arch, arching over a drive to the right. Pull into this drive and park in the parking lot. Walk back into the park, and follow the path to the right. Until you see God's Hands holding up a boulder.

I go there often, and if you go to the back side of the rock, it offers a pretty good challenge. I definitely recommend it. There's a wide range of difficulties depending on the side.
