The Stonehenge Boulders is a collection of sizeable blocks scattered across the desert floor equidistant from Cap Rock and Ryan Campground and a short distance to the south from the roadside Fry Boulders.
An extensive circuit of 50+ problems up to V7 is found here with most being in the V2 and under range making this a great place for some easier bouldering. Notable problems here include the aptly named Picture Perfect
(V1), the tall slab of Foot Fetish
(V1+) and the crimpy Picture Perfect (sit)
The Stonehenge Boulders are best reached by following the loop "nature trail" which starts from the Cap Rock parking area and then breaking off to the southwest from the Pumping Monzonite Boulder
along a well-worn trail. The approach takes about 10 minutes from the parking area.
Another option is to approach from the west side of Ryan Campground near Flight Attendant Rock
, which takes about 10 minutes as well.
Weather station 11.6 miles from here

This fun problem climbs the slanting and overhung northwest arete of the boulder and is much better than appearances might first suggest. Sit start at an incut rail, get your feet set and then surf the arete left - sometimes using the lip of the arete and other times using holds further back - to a cool sequence below the lip and then polish it off with a classic mantle/rockover move onto the top. Fun and athletic in nature, this is another great moderate problem of the area. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
