Description 

This is the meat and potatoes of the Rock Maze. A relatively high concentration of bouldering problems are here, close enough to keep climbing shoes on when walking between problems. Many good problems are here in about the V1 to V5 range. Make sure to check out Southern Discomfort (V2-V3), Slot Machine (V1), and Muscle Corner (V5).

This area of the Maze is filled with fairly low problems or traverses with generally good landings. Easy for the ankles, especially with a crash pad.


Getting There 

From the parking area, head south up the main dirt road, then left up the first faint road, and follow this up the hill as it parallels the rocks that are on the left. When you come to a hill crest (about 3 minute walk), head east (left) and follow a trail that hugs the side of the rocks for a minute or two to a bunch of boulders. The area can be identified by an overhanging ledgey jug haul (Southern Discomfort), a triangle-shaped boulder (Breaking Point), and a square boulder with a large jug pocket a foot from the top (Slot Machine). Also, if you continue just past this, a long roof traverse is around the corner a bit (Muscle Corner).

Reaching on "Erica's Arete" in the Rock  <br />Maze.

Erica's Arete V7 7A+  SD : Rock Maze : South Central Rocks
"Erica's Arete" is well into the Rock Maze and stands over a downed tree with the roots placed perfectly for being impaled. But, with a little work, the route is easily protected (i.e. pad covering the exposed roots).Start under the arete on nice jugs and work directly over the arete line. Use small pockets and perfect foot placements to reach up and left to a tiny edge. Beautiful line....[more]   Browse More Classics in SD
