Eagle Rock

Eagle Rock is the first really big cliff on the south side of the canyon, about 6 miles from Boulder. It is simplest to park on the north side of the road at an obvious pullout just before the cliff, cross the road and head uphill a bit to the boulders. The creek is very powerful during spring and summer runoff and caution is advised when crossing it.

The Shark Boulder

Locate a shark-shaped boulder close to the creek, just upstream of the approach to Eagle Rock.

A tough compression-style problem, starting low and working out the boulder's prow. Chris' description is here.

Pirate Boulder

This is a small cliff below Eagle Rock, recognizable for its overhanging west face. The base is almost always in the water.
