This boulder and block duo is tucked away from the more popular Rock House and Olympus Boulders, and is out of the public spotlight. If the kids and onlookers are crawling all over, then scurry across to the Picnic boulder and Block to pull down in privacy.
The Picnic Boulder is short but lengthy, and has plenty of steepness to go around. The downhill end has a massive, handsome, overhanging roof with an interesting mid-stripe of quartzite.
The Picnic Block is smaller and nearly touching the Picnic Boulder. The uphill end thrusts up to form a long, thin, aggressive point. It also houses the 500th boulder problem of the park.
Find the enormous Olympus Boulder. walk across the road (the road you drive in on) and into the Rhododendrons. The boulder and block are tucked away just beside the road.
