Looking north to the BMX Crags, Horseman's Center
This is the name given the various crags scattered about the hillside and it's base near the BMX track, most of which are either south or west facing and often very sunny. The rock quality is a bit better overall here than in The Cemetery although exceptions do exisit.
From the parking area head north to the various crags on the rocky hillside.

I am looking for the name, and route names of a boulder that is directly north or circus. Its all by itself in the field behind the BMX track. Ive seen chalk on it, and a dad with his kids climbing it. any one who can help with a name or link of the info on this boulder would be great! Thanks!

If it is the boulder I am thinking of, then it looks like a igloo and I have always referred to it as such. I have bouldered around the area for years and have done pretty much every problem on the boulder. Every problem is quality for the area. Going off of memory from the giant slab and working clockwise is as follows:
1. Battle of the Bulge V0
- Slab to big flat edge to top
2. Downclimb VB
- Southeast arete
3. ??? V0
- Small face to right of arete on small edges
4. ??? V1
- Center face
5. ??? V2/3
- Northeast arete starting on faint sidepulls to sloper and up
6. ??? V?
- As I recall there is a small hold low on the north face crank up
7. ??? V4
- Northwest arete sit start low and finish up groove feature
8. ??? V5
- West face crimps to edge to top
9. Southwest Arete V3
- Best problem on boulder. Start low, somewhat awkwardly, matched on obvious hold. Follow the chalk to the top!
I am not claiming fa's or that these grades are gospel. Next time I go out there I will try to take some photos to post up.
