This area is not new. The bouldering has yet to be listed in mountainproject. This is just the beginning of the bouldering, which seems to see little traffic. The information within drtopo.com for this area and with Tyler McMillen's guide "Tucson Bouldering" are a great reference point for this area. They just touch the surface, as this vast area, known for its sport and trad routes eclipses the bouldering. That being said, the bouldering is extensive, just under-looked. The rock features beautiful contrasts between the granite and the green and black/grey lichen. A combination of abrasive to slick pad friendly and pad-eating rock is in abundance.
