Middle Bliss 

This is center court for Bliss and well worth a visit for any aspiring boulderer. Dozens of lines are to be had, across every difficulty level. But the V4 - V7 climber will find themselves well served on the areas stellar moderates.

Noteable lines include Gunslinger V5, and the awesome Bliss Arete V4.

Getting There 

Heading south, flip around and park in the second northbound pull out you go past.
