About Gilpin Rd:

good boulders here, i've started cleaning them and i cant wait to see whats next. ON GILPIN FORESTRY RD CLOSE TO Grand Forks on highway 3. if you miss the big rock in the field then you dont deserve to be there ! wink wink
Approach: Go over the cattle guard and follow the road around the corner. The first set of boulders is right on the side of the road. Has red spray paint and a few chalk marks. The next two are just up the road some more. The tall pointed one to the right has potential, but has dicey landings. The one to the left just a bit farther up has two good problems following the sideways cracks around, or going straight up the east facing slab.
