Description 

The Manx Boulders are two oblong boulders separated by a narrow chimney/gap with close to 20 problems ranging from V-easy to V4 on their west and east faces.

Due to it's proximity to Hidden Valley Campground, and the fact that the bulk of the problems here are rated V2 and under, this is a popular spot to boulder - so don't be surprised if you're not alone here.

Some of the better problems here include The Boxer Problem (V2), Out of Touch (V2), Undertow (V3) and Off Camber (V4).

Getting There 

From Hidden Valley Campgound follow a trail along the south end of Cyclops Rock and then continue along to the backside where you'll find these mostly west-facing blocks. The approach from Hidden Valley takes 5-10 minutes.
