On the south shoulder of Joe Brown Boulder.
This area has a number of good boulder problems and top ropes, all with excellent rock quality. A number of the climbs are difficult to label as either bolder problems or Top Ropes, so use your judgement to decide how you want to tackle them. Joe Brown
and Half Dome Boulder
are located above the bridge while the Harrison Boulder
is to be found downslope below the bridge.
The classic climbs found here include The Mug
, The Eye
and Pink Bug
Walk up the access road. Just south of the summit the road has a bridge. This bridge is at the center of the area.
Weather station 3.2 miles from here

On the southwest side of the larger Half Dome boulder, climb up the vertical face on excellent rock. Use sidebulls, an undercling, and incut flakes near the top. Fairly OTD with a not-so-great landing, many might opt to set a toprope utilizing the same anchors that are used for the north face cracks. Warning: lizards live under the deep undercling and might startle you, although I've never had one bite me in what I imagine are probably more than a hundred ascents....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
