  Terrain Boulders, AKA Droegerland - Bear Peak

Bear Peak in the Flatirons Tucked away in the southern Flatirons above Boulder, Colorado is yet another new wealth of boulders problems known as the Terrain Boulders. The problems have all been done with the utmost respect for the rock (no chipping) and the fragile surroundings should be treated with the same care (stay on trails, pack out your trash, etc.). People have been bouldering here for some time, and a handful of nice, low traverses were done, but the majority of the tall, hard problems have been bum-rushed with more modern technologies such as crash pads and spotters.


Pros: Peaceful setting, varied bouldering and a handful
         of stout test pieces to hurl yourself at. Good rock.
Cons: Can stay snowy (rocks are in trees)
          30 minute approach, some sharp grips.


 How to Get There:
 Take Table Mesa Drive west past King Soopers, and take a left onto Lehigh Drive
after about 1 miles. Go up (south) on Lehigh for less than a mile and take a right on
Cragmoor near the top of the hill. Drive to the end of Cragmoor and park in the cul-de-sac.
 
Hike up the north fork of the Shanahan trail. At the Mesa trail go left (south), descending
into a gully and climbing a hill out of it. Once at the top of the hill go right (west) and
follow a faint trail past cairns for about ten minutes (roughly 300 yards)
 
The Bob Boulder is in the meadow down the hill to the south. The rest of the boulders
are northish, hidden in the forest almost up to the base of the Flatirons:
(The Slab, Shanahan Crags)
.

  Black Ice V10/11
Black Ice is a brilliant new addition from local Will LeMaire. Will found the problem & hiked up there by himself many days before the ascent. Black Ice may be the best problem in the Flatirons. There has been a lot of speculation about the grade but it seems to have settled around V10/11. It is located in Fern Canyon. The easiest way to ge there is to follow the directions to the Terrain Blocks. When you get to the base of the Great Slab, the trail to the Terrains heads left. Take the right hand fork right for Black Ice. You will follow this trail for about a quarter mile down and up a gulley before interescting the Shanahan Trail. Continue left, or uphill until you come to an obvious, bolted, red arete on the right side of the trail. Black Ice climbs out the roof on the left side of the trail. It starts in the very back on a bread loaf pinch & comes straight out the roof. A sit-start was added by Brian Kimball which adds several moves of pump by climbing through the starting footholds.
