45 Degree Boulder Rock Climbing
The back of the 45 from path.
The 45 Degree Boulder is a steep and featured rock that sits up on the top of the west bluff just south of the Prospect Point Pinnacle. There are three distinct lines, but variations do exist and the top-outs can seem like the crux. Bring your pads and enjoy.
Easiest way is from the top of the West Bluff near the Prospect Point Towers overlook. Hike south on the trail for about 50yds while keeping an eye out for a little trail on the left. Follow this down along cliff east for about 30ft. Look right and you should see the boulder.

Wow, another great looking boulder. I will have to break out my pad soon and dedicate a few days to bouldering. Thanks for the additions Remo.

I don't think this is properly located as listed. Probably should be under "West Bluff South".

Defintely quicker to find this boulder from the Fire Road than hiking up the talus from Tumbled Rocks trail, but you're right it's not really on the Fire Road. I'd be fine with moving it to the bluff area but much easier to find from above.
