Indian Cracks Rock Climbing
With a handful of quality moderate boulder problems with great landings, this boulder is deservedly popular. There are a few harder routes (traverses, mainly) which I didn't have time to work on, but which may be worth checking out.
The obvious "splitter" crack on the front face of the boulder is called "Indian Crack", V0.
Routes from left to right, starting with Indian Crack, VO are
1) Indian Crack, V0
2) Easy Mantle, V0 (also on the front face)
3) Honey Dipper, V2 (first route on the right face)
4) 1 1/4" Crack, V1 (fifteen feet down from Honey Dipper)
There is also a V5 traverse starting at route 4 and finishing at route 1. I didn't try it but it looked cool. Reportedly there is a V7 traverse on the backside of the boulder, but it didn't look like much.
Descend from all problems via a 4th class chimney on the left side. Some has taken the liberty of tick-marking all the useful footholds for this descent, which to me seemed excessive, but to each his own I guess.
Park as for Indian Rock. Go right of the obvious visible boulder and follow a faint trail (parallel to the access trail for Indian Rock, perpendicular to the road) for about 100 feet through the trees. You will soon be greeted by the obvious Indian Crack boulder and its eponymous V0 Indian Crack boulder problem.

Another decent problem. Start on good holds and (you guessed it) mantle into the huge pocket. Descend the chimney.There is also a contrived problem in between "Mantle" and "Indian Cracks". Basically you don't get to use the crack for your left hand or the good top out holds of "Mantle" for your right. The crux is a long throw. V1? ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
