  • Description 

    Shady most of the day, the Mushroom Boulder has many classic problems from V0 to V10. It can get crowded.

    Getting There 

    From the park entrance, turn right and park at the bathroom at the end of the road. Walk past the gate until you get to a large boulder with a vertical north face and a overhanging east face. If you see another bathroom, you've gone too far.

    The standard for V8 according to Sherman and a classic as well. A couple of the slots are supposedly chipped out on this problem but I'm not 100% sure of I belive that, still classic none the less. Start on the jug at the end of the low flake that goes all the way to the bottom of the boulder, one can start lower but it just turns it into a butt dragging...Move up with either hand to start to an edge for the left or a tooth for the right.

    This boulder is now apparently "closed". I think I'm going to cry.

    Most of this boulder is closed due to erosion (that's what happens when you drag your pads around in the dirt) and the underlying native artifacts.

    Everything on the south face is open still, but the classics on the North and West face are closed.
