Bouldering at the County Park, Idyllwild
Idyllwild County Park is situated in the town of Idyllwild and plays host to a number of granite boulders scattered around the campground. With the climbing situated nearby you'll often find yourself the only climbers here. In winter when all but 6 camping spots are closed the area can be very tranquil.
It is part of Riverside County Parks and therefore has rules and regulations like the other parks. It also has an entrance fee ($2 per adult, $1 per dog). Idyllwild Park

The namesake problem for this boulder, this is a really unique and fun problem. Start as far back on the right side of the boulder as you can, using a couple handjams underneath the cap. Work your way to the left using hand and fist jams until you come to a spot where the crack widens beyond fists. At this point you transition to using the underside of the cap as an undercling and continue smearing. Finish up the mantle between the lobes or continue to the crack for the 'Full Frontal' variation ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

Just an FYI to everyone... I recently moved to Idyllwild and plan to add more content to this area since I live down the street. There seems to be very little information in the guidebook world (1 page in Craig Fry's guide) so I think it will benefit the community to flesh this place out a bit. If anything that I add seems wrong/inaccurate or improperly named, or poor quality, please let me know and I'll be glad to change/improve anything. In the interest of making the park easy to navigate, I will provide tentative names to the boulders but if there are existing names, please let me know and I'll modify my postings. Also, please let me know if there are any other resources I could access for more existing info. Thanks!

The Fry Guide has most of this stuff. If it's not named in the Fry Guide, and it's not a FA, definitely don't try to give it a name. Retro-naming is lame!
