High above Riverside on the Beehive Crack (V-easy)...


The Borson's area contains some of the best moderate and most easily accessible bouldering at Rubidoux. All the problems are located no more than a few yards from the access road that is situated just to the East of the summit cross.

Unlike some areas at Rubidoux the majority of the problems located here are not too tall and all have good solid flat landings.

Standout problems here are Flight of the Bumble Bee, Killer Bees, Auto Pilot, Masterlock and not forgetting the fun Cornerstone Righthand.

Getting There 

Walk up the access road towards the summit. Close to the summit on the East side you'll see the obvious bridge and tower. This is located at the north end of the area.

Perhaps the best problem on the wall, this problem shares the start of Killer Bees but moves right and then up using an interesting pinch and requiring good balance and footwork, ending at approximately the same place as the Beehive Mantle....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
