Capital Gorge Boulders Rock Climbing
Burly yet delicate
Listed problems are located on the North side of the road within Capitol Gorge. Just through the gate, right after the wash enters on the right side.
There is a lot more potential around the area, some boulders on the South side of the road and more further down.
Keep to the trails and washes - there is a lot of Cryptobiotic Soil
in the area. If climbing becomes destructive to the fragile ecosystem here we may lose access to the area entirely!
From the park visitor center, drive South 7.7 miles to the restroom and end of the pavement, then go through the gate on the dirt road until the wash crosses the road. From the top of the next rise (about 50 feet out of the wash) you can see the boulders.

This area should probably be under the Capitol Gorge area as opposed to its own area.

I think separating bouldering areas from cragging areas isn't a bad practice, and it isn't like Capitol Reef will turn into a complex organizational headache so i'll just leave it like this.
