On January 6,2009 a layer broke away from a limestone cliffs near Mile Marker 8 on SR-14 causing a large rock slide which wrecked havoc on the road below. But in the process deposited several large boulders in the valley that created new possibilities for first assents.
As soon as the snow had melted beneath the boulders a group of climbers from SUU lead by Zach Bradford started cleaning up the area for bouldering. Several problems were put up but the summer arrived and the boulders were forgotten until the next fall. In the fall of 2009 Ryan Meeks started once again developing routes.

The current routes are mainly found on the largest boulder on the west side of the road.

Getting There 

Drive up the canyon until about mile marker 8. The road offers a passing lane, stay in the left lane and prepare to turn off the highway onto a dirt road that heads down to the creek below. This road is hard to see on the approach so if you see a large dirt pull off on the west side of the road you have gone about 100 yards too far.
If you pull off on the dirt drive back down canyon slowly, looking for the access road 50 to 100 down canyon.

Park down this road near the boulders, the local highway patrol doesn't want anyone to park in the large pullout near the road due to the potential for falling rocks.

Went up to check conditions today. The snow is clear and the rock is dry. BUT while we were up there an avalanche from the upper cliffs triggered a small rock slide. Pretty scary, slide was fairly small. Only few large rocks ended up in the road and no rocks made it to the lower boulders. IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO STAY AWAY FROM THE SLIDE AREA UNTIL THE SNOW MELTS. You wouldn't want to be caught in a larger slide.

You can see from the photo that flanigan's boulder made it through the landslide.

The question is whether it will make it through the clean-up.

With a bit of luck it will make it through and gain a few large friends.
