|This area was primarily developed by Matt Kirk and Aaron Adams back in 1996. At one time they had over 120 mapped problems almost all of the names are new shown here but that's cool some of the classics were are listed here are accurate like cocaine corner and mvfp (Mike, Vaughn, Foot, Beta) just saying thought they should get their props.|

Yea, lot of folks began climbing here before 1990. The place definitely looked different. Most of the stuff climbed was obvious and easy to us. Lot of the problems done were renamed arbitrarily by Javier then others. Matt K came a bit later.
Guys like Mike Covington, Jay Anderson, Scary Larry, Dave Insley, Kiril the russian, Chris Hahn, Corey Chatwin, and I'm sure I left a few of the other guys out. Over time a lot of people left their mark quietly and some problems were found over and over again.
A lot of this began after the '88 Phx Bouldering Contest that was held at the South Mountain Boy Scout Camp on 24th Street. You aren't allowed there anymore but it would be worth getting it open if you have an in.

As a non-local, I found it pretty hard to find anything other than the World Boulder area, and the Entrance Boulders. The directions on how to get to the boulders seemed to imply that you go up the path to the right of the stone building, which lead to some chossy unestablished boulders that are very misleading, when in reality you want to go basically straight past the building and follow the bottom of the canyon on the left until you reach the entrance boulders.
Hopefully this is not taken as criticism, I just want to help people find some pretty great boulder problems.
Thanks for all the hard work and development, I had a great time!
