BETA PHOTO: Location of Price Is Right Boulders

Description 

Great place to escape the heat in late summer/fall.
Boulders are shaded in the summer, and hardly ever see any traffic it seems. The rock is all really solid and similar to Joe's Valley sandstone.

Most problems here seem really hard, although there are a few V3 and under that you can play around on and enjoy a secluded afternoon.

Getting There 

From I-15, head onto US-6 E From Spanish Fork towards Price for about 46 miles, then turn right into the Rec. Area.
From the south, the recreation area is only about 15 miles from the town of Price.

Follow the road up for a few hundred feet until you come to a sharp left turn with a parking area to the right(small, for about 4 cars).
The trail leading to the boulders is located just to the left of the drainage behind the parking. Follow the trail up the hill and you'll start seeing boulders with chalk marks on them

Hey, thanks for putting these boulders up. The area these boulders are located in is called the "Price Is Right Boulders." Farther up the hill from this group of boulders there is another area called "Wheel of Fortune Boulders."

Thanks to grk10vq for correcting the names for those problems!
Just had the directions to get there and never knew any ratings/names...

What an awesome area! I will definitely be climbing there a lot this season.
