Raiden Area Rock Climbing
Charles using all that muscle to subdue THE KRAKEN...
Great boulders such as The Kraken, Grateful Dead, and Raiden.
Drive 2.7 or 2.8 miles down the left fork. Pull out on the left side. The boulders will be on the right side of the canyon when you are driving in.
A few boulders will be accessable right from the road, but classics like The Kraken and Grateful Dead can only be acessed by a hike up a trial head. The trailhead is fairly well established and is found by hiking about 200 ft towards the mouth of the canyon. The prominent "Whiteout" Boulder is visible from the trailhead and will let you know you are in the right place.
