Puppy Boulders Rock Climbing
Dom Barry on problem G on a recent trip from Lake ...
The boulders here sit next to a great spot on the river, which means you will most likely not be alone, but looking on the bright side; after a hard session bouldering you can take a nice dip in the river to finish a perfect day.
There are around 50 problems, some short some tall, some easy and a couple definitely not easy. All the problems are on perfect rock.
Many of the landings are flat, however a few are less than ideal, so pack the pads and come with friends.
The trail starts from the wilderness permit office parking lot. To reach this head east for 0.8 of a mile from the Tuolumne gas station, and turn right following signs for the office.
From the parking lot head to the bear lockers, and then onto a well defined trail. A trail heads off left and right (PCT), ignore that and head straight on a smaller but still good trail. Walk along this for about 5 minutes. You will come to the river and shortly thereafter the boulders will be visible on the left.

Was here this past weekend and loved it! Note that you need to take the trail to the left of the bear lockers. There is another one to the right that leads nowhere. Beautiful spot with good range of difficulty, from beginner on up.
