Description 

Excellent granite bouldering that, despite having a decent amount of development, has vast potential for the developer. Just go forth, find a boulder, scrub some holds and get an FA...extensive hiking may be required, depending on motivation, but the rewards are limitless.

Getting There 

Follow directions for Hatcher Pass, but do not turn on the Archangel Road, "Continue up Fish hook road past Archangel Road for a few miles, and you will encounter a low parking lot, with two bathrooms and a park pay site. If the gate is open for the mine, continue up and park. If the gate is closed, park at the main lot. Look toward the main parking lot entrance entrance. There is a large, steep hill, with a white crucifix on the top. Follow existing trails to the top, where a boulder is visible. This is the Crucifix Boulder. This was developed by Todd Helgeson and Matt Lowber in 2010. The two most obvious lines are Annunciation, V6 on the triangle front face, left side, and Golgotha, V7, right side of the face. The boulder has approximately 7 lines on it. Be respectful/mindful of landowners, as it is on publicly accessed private property!!!
