The name pretty much sums it up. This is the clearcut area below the forest, with numerous house-sized boulders.

Getting to the bouldering areas Clearcut and The Forest requires a 3 mile hike; there are no longer parking areas close by, and haven't been for what appears to be quite some time.

From the turn off of Reiter Road, hike under the power lines and up the old road for 3 miles of gradually climbing switchbacks. There is a major fork in the trail at the top of a switchback -- to continue to The Forest/eastern Clearcut (Que Luna, Fraggle Rock), go right at the fork; to continue to western Clearcut/western Forest, go left at the fork. There is a trail through the woods that links the West Forest with East/The Sanctuary; route finding through Clearcut can be tricky
