Description 

These solid granite boulders are just up the hill from Camp Firewalker, a popular high-adventure camp at Lake Wellington, with great views of The Castle. I started cleaning and developing lines here in 1998, so many others might have been there well before me.

The first cluster is known lately as "Guano Rock."
Boulder uphill to the east, we'll call "Abinadi Rock."

FYI: you don't go on the property of the lake or the camp for these boulders. So don't pay the day-use fee for Lake Wellington or worry about trespassing at Camp Firewalker.

Getting There 

Follow directions to Lake Wellington (Buffalo Creek).

From the Lake Office Building, go southeast on FS-560 (left, as you're looking at the lake). You'll drive around the lake and past a Camp Firewalker gate on the right. Stay on FS-560 for 1.35 miles from the Office and you'll be at the base of the hill for the boulders (you should be able to pull over on the side of the road without issue). Hike uphill and enjoy!
