Found at the end of the Black Mountain Road, the boulders here are distributed across the campground. Most of the developed problems are found amongst the tall boulders around and near campsite 20. The downside to this area is the abundant number of people enjoying the great outdoors.
The parking situation is limited. You will either need an adventure pass and park such that you're not blocking any of the roads / trails OR pay the $10 dollars to stay in a campsite. Campsite reservations and an iron ranger are located at the entrance to the campsite.
Please take care not to trample through people's campsites (easier said than done) without asking for permission. On crowded weekends, more often than not, tents are pitched unknowingly under choice problems or even the downclimbs. Scope out the scene before jumping on a problem like a kid in a candy store. And finally don't forget to scope out the downclimb - more often than not, you're upclimbing the downclimb...
Follow the signs to Boulder Basin Campground. Stop the car when you arrive. Approaches to most climbs are anywhere between 5 seconds and 5 minutes.

Where Boneheads Dare V5 6C
: San Jacinto Mountains
: ... : Daring Boulder
A committing problem, Where Boneheads Dare entices many who come to Boulder Basin. Start on the crescent shaped crimper and move up to the tiny crimp higher up. Once the feet are established in the starting hold, move up and slightly left to top out. The physical / technical crux is down low. Although the remaining moves are physically easier, it's not for the faint of heart. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

... I would NOT buy an "adventure pass"
By Dan Popa

The fine for not buying the Adventure Pass is $5 (the same as the cost of the pass itself) and carries no penalties for not paying it (to my knowledge).

In reference to prrdylady's post...
I found this problem and sent a few years back...at the time it didn't appear to have been done. I cleaned up the holds covered in lichen and spider webs. I always assumed it had been done before though, since it is in such close proximity to classics in the area. I thought it was right in the v3/4 range. A fun problem though! Maybe when Ian finishes the guide we will get a name, but until then I'd just refer to it as the unknown 3/4 behind Pink Crack.
P.S . I actually have a picture of myself on this problem on my mt project page circa 2008. Nice job on the send!
