A typical day at the Central Happies.
This area is essentially the heart of the canyon both in terms of location as well as highly concentrated classics. The flat landings and quality of problems attract almost every first-time visitor, and for good reason.
Peter Croft's The Hulk
is considered by many to be the best line in the canyon, and a pad's throw away to the neighboring boulder you can find the great but tricky Solarium
. If you'd like to test your head, perhaps the beautifully angled and clean-cut Heavenly Path
will suit you, with a balancy but solid crux and a top-out at around 25 feet.
If you only have limited time to visit the Happy Boulders, make this a stop on your list, as it would be a shame to miss it.
