Description 

This rock is in a small field of boulders. The texture is pretty grippy with lots of pockets and slopers. All routes are about 15 ft tall and top out at the same place. It has level ground for crash pads and is surrounded by trees that provide pretty decent shade. It's a new area under development.

Getting There 

From Rexburg, head North on Highway 33 for about a mile. Take a right on Moody Oil Rd (E 2000 N, AKA "E Moody Rd") and go about 4 miles. Take another right on N 6000 E (Archery Rd). Go about a half mile. You will go down a hill and over a creek. A lot of smaller boulders will be on your left. As you go up the hill, a bunch of trees will be on your left. Baby Bird and the other boulders are all back in those trees about 50 ft.

Stopped by to check things out April 2015. Calling this area "under development" is a bit generous. There is no trail to the base of baby bird, and it is clear no one has been there in a while. There are several boulders worth climbing but the area around the base of some of them would need to be cleared out. It appears to be on private property and the developers have not mentioned whether or not they got permission. It could be a neat little spot in the future, but it needs some love.

Just to show the bushwacking required to get down there.... The climbs looked like a lot of fun though.
