Metolius Colossus Crash Pad
Here's what other sites are saying:
As the name implies, the Colossus Crash Pad from Metolius provides enormous coverage with 4 by 6 feet of dual-density foam cushioning - just in case gravity gets the better of you. Boulder your way along new routes with little worry, because when you fall, 2.3-inches of open-cell foam absorbs the energy while the 1.2-inches of closed-cell foam on top disperse force, when you're done for the day, simply pack up this hinged design that folds up for more efficient transport and storage.
