South Saint Vrain Canyon Bouldering: February in Colorado

Last week Tara and I took advantage of another spectacular Colorado February day and went to an obscure boulder in South Saint Vrain Canyon. The boulder resides in a dry wash in a beautiful setting. Although not necessarily a destination spot for most climbers, the boulder offers a handful of really fun problems, along with some eliminates and traverses.

The problems are all in the "average human" range, although there may be potential for one or two really hard problems if any of the local strong men or women decide to throw themselves at it.

Either way, if you are looking for a good boulder with some interesting problems that sees very little traffic, this just might be the one. The potential for more boulders abounds in the wash, although none are known. Perhaps up the creek a ways will reveal another gem...
