With close to half a dozen problems and no approach the Picnic Boulder
could be just the ticket for some casual bouldering if in the area. The rock is a little on the rough side here but if the weather is on the chilly side and your skin is up to it they can be quite fun. The easiest way off the boulder is down Ant Line
Highlights here include the technical Whole Lotta Nothing
(V2) and the exhilarating No Picnic
Remember to be courteous and ask before bouldering here if the campsite is occupied.
In campsite 15 which is just past the Short Wall after the two roads merge.
Climbing Season For the Indian Cove CG area.
Weather station 6.6 miles from here
