The Penthaus, Boulder Canyon

Welcome to the Penthaus (Otherwise known as The Friends & Family Crag) -  Boulder Canyon.

The Penthaus gate keeper.  (Black Nasty)

This has been a full summer long project of cleaning, trundling, bolting, trail building, base building to prevent erosion, and last but not least climbing. . . There have been 14 new routes opened up.  Trad, sport, mixed.
Everything from 5.9 to 5.11+  All with real honest grades, no fluffy Boulder Canyon stuff!
Jason Maruer heading up Safety First.  (The first route at the crag.) 

Thanks to everyone who helped develop this little gem!

Easy Skankin

Many have spent numerous hours taking care of business here.  Dang, just the approach is work itself!
A 30 minute up hill for Boulder Canyon?  Some may think that is too long.  We thought it was
just right.  It keeps the masses away.  Oh and did I mention it is all shady?  Especially cold this time of year.
XXX - A lovely 5.9 trad.

The first two routes at the crag!  Safety First (red) & Players Club (blue)

We will eventually publish this area, but not until we finish development. 
It's dangerous up in those parts!  Safety first, ya know. . .
