About Plotinus Wall:

A relatively new area developed primarily by Bob D'Antonio that has become quite popular due to the abundance of 10s. A few routes require gear placements so bring a few cams. SE facing and gets great morning sun. The area is quite scenic and does not suffer from the car nosie which is typical in BoCan. The grades for many of the routes are pretty soft... in general, according to Bob D., 1 to 2 letter grades should be subtracted from the given grades for consistency with the rest of Boulder Canyon. Some of the better routes are listed below. For more beta and topos check out climbingboulder.com.

Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues: not sure if the Boulder Falls approach is frowned upon or not
