This popular bouldering area, situated on the backside of the massive Cyclops Rock, consists of the Manx Boulders, the Pigpen area and some other scattered problems.

The Manx Boulders themselves offer a very compact circuit of more than fifteen problems ranging from V-easy to V4 with generally flat landings. The nearby Pigpen (V4) is a classic roof crack problem with several variations up to V11 in difficulty.

Getting There 

Park as for Cyclops Rock and walk past its southwest face, following a well-used trail. The Manx Boulders are located just beyond in a sandy, open area facing west. Pigpen lies about 80 meters closer toward the Campground from the Manx Boulders.

Behind Cyclops rock is this awesome boulder problem. A sit start in a cave starts you out 10' of finger crack through the roof in the cave, to a tight-hands swing around the lip and then fingers, off fingers and tight hands lead to a funky top out that is for many the crux....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
