Many boulders strewn throughout the woods east of the hiking trail. Bouldering ranges from sit-start mini's to high-ball 40' TR problems.
The area is still in its infancy, but has ~80 problems. Most are V0-V4, with a few harder lines up to V8.
Primitive camping is available near the bouldering area.

Getting There 

Once you are at the Crane Mountain Trailhead Parking lot, access is easy and short. A two minute walk up a path leads from the end of the wooden fence to the first boulder, the Splitting Headache.
