Boulderwoods Rock Climbing
Matt Oakes and support crew on Rostrum Arête.
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.
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.
