Description 

This section of the MP guide will contain Boulders located in the first 2 gullies starting from the gulley that you drive in on Shanklin's Ferry Rd.

There are around a dozen established classic lines in this area that are worth checking out and another couple dozen problems that will be mentioned mostly because they are near the classics and work good as warm-ups or diversions.

Historical Beta for this area is sparse and we are hopeful that Shawn or others can help us fill this in over time.

Don't miss Roadside Euphoria, 50/50, and the BoulderCliff problem. Otherwise look at the star ratings Travis gave to determine what is worth your time.

Getting There 

Park on the right hand side of the paved road about 50 feet before you hit the Bluestone sign (This is as you are driving down into the valley).

Look into the shallow drainage to your right and you should be able to see the Roadside Boulders. This is where Roadside Euphoria, 50/50, several other boulders along the mini cliff line above and a few other problems nearby but down the drainage can be found.

After you walk through this initial section you will follow a short cliff through a talus field. On the opposite side of the Talus you will find the BoulderCliff Area. Along the way there is a bunch of bouldering heigh cliffline that may or may not have worthwhile problems. If you are bouldering under V4, and have ambition, this would be a great area to bring a brush and establish some new lines.

After walking past the Bouldercliff Area you will eventually get to the Powerline and Project Area.
