BETA PHOTO: Alpha Boulder's east and south faces.
Bravo is a large boulder that is home to a host of problems. The east-facing overhang provides a few decent lowball problems, and the south and west faces offer a handful of highball problems.
The rock quality is mixed but is mostly very good. The landings are also mixed but are quite good where most of the problems climb. There is a small down-climb on the northeast corner near the juniper tree.
From the parking area, cross HWY 141 to the east, and head up the hill in a northeasterly direction. Reference page map for clarification.
