About Gross Reservoir aka Damnation:

This area has been closed by Denver Water due to anti-terrorism concerns. It is a federal offense to trespass on the property This is an average sized (about 40-50 problems) granite bouldering area southwest of Boulder near the Gross Reservoir. There are some excellent problems of all abilities from V0 to one of the hardest problems in the Front Range "Turn that Frown Upside Down V12/V13). The area is just far enough from a major town to cut down the crowds and is at a high enough elevation to allow bouldering on hot summer days.
