There are two major bouldering areas. ( St. Pattys day boulder and Gangsters Paradise boulder.Update: From what I hear there are already many established climbs on these boulders. Whoever has Fa'd them please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, so that I can update this area.
Drive Highway 38 from Redlands heading East. Drive through Mentone, and follow the 38 and pull over at the first pull out near the creek. Cross the creek, Boulders are very visible.
Start on a low jug and work your way across 15 feet of underclings and small seams for your feet. Once you traverse over, work small holds and a side pull to reach a large jug to begin your ascent to the top out (crux). ...[more]Browse More Classics in CA
This area has a long history of climbing since the early 1990s. We called it Mill Wash Boulders and I wrote a small guide for it that was featured in MotherRock. Since then, Louie Anderson and his crew redid some of our older problems as well as established some new problems. I am not sure if he ever wrote a guide, but a lot of his work can be found here (look at the pictures for the area not the routes listed):
The nature of the wash and associated run off volume/intensity during the spring can really change a lot of the makeup and bases of the boulders. A boulder we used to climb at below the bridge was over 10 feet tall, a few years later, it was 3 feet tall.
Hate to break it to you guys, but not FAs.
This topo from 1995 will get you going on more than you probably are even aware of yet:
Hey thanks for the update! We had tried to find information on this spot and found nothing,so we put these Climbs up. If you could email the routes and fa's for me that would be awesome! Thanks again for informing me.
Just a clarification: I do agree this info should be merged with the Mentone boulders (Mill Wash) as that is exactly how we always referred to them. However, I don't want to make this a negative thing. It is cool to see the next generation turned on to and psyched about the old stomping grounds. I am sure that people were out there doing problems before the 90s when I was there. If you guys haven't checked out the boulder past Mill Creek Road, you are in for a big surprise. That boulder is stellar.
checked out that boulder today after mill creek road found that it was full of artificial holds....I understand that if a vital hold breaks...but this was crazy, any one know whats up with this one. It seems to me that if the putty holds were not there this rock may have less routes but they might be better than V0's
Ive heard the "putty hold" boulder referred to as the "Mentone Meteorite". Can anyone confirm this? Also, is there any desire for it to be added to the section? Artificial and chipped holds aside, there are still some really fun problems for anyone in a v1-3 range.
