The Outbreak Area is area is characterized by a huge, house sized boulder accessed from the north end of the parking lot. The Outbreak Boulder forms a corridor with another smaller boulder about 6 feet to the west, closer to the cliff line. The Outbreak boulder and it's neighbor have numerous problems for the beginning climber, all the way up to V11. The easier climbs generally have perfect landings making it a great spot for new climbers as well as a great area to circuit V0-V2 problems.

Getting There 

From the north end of the parking lot, follow gravel path through an open field. Eventually you will reach a clearing where you can see the cliff line. From here head right. The trail will split, but it doesn't matter which way you go because it forms a loop. You will see a foot trail marked blue with a yellow rectangle and from there you can see the massive Outbreak Boulder.
