UDOT will ticket cars parked on the south side of the canyon opposite the Secret Garden bouldering area. MORE INFO >>>


Goldy is a fun boulder with mostly V2's and easier. It does sport a V3, V4, and V5 though for those looking for something harder.

Getting There 

Goldy is located in the Southwest corner of The Secret Garden. It is the first large boulder after the parking lot boulders, on the south side of the trail if approaching from the main park and ride lot. If approaching from the Secret Garden pull out on the highway, you will hike past Copperhead and All-Thumbs Boulders, go left (West) on the main trail, past the obvious Off-Width Boulder to Goldy just south of the trail.

I'm pretty sure this is the boulder that Grijalva's Utah Bouldering guidebook calls the Flying Carpet boulder.
