Stonehenge Boulders Rock Climbing

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

Located just west of the Black Lichen Boulder on a small boulder which is tucked into a nest of other boulders.Stand start at a high pinch on the arete, feet up on high edges and lock off/throw for an obvious jug. Once on the jug pull around onto the right side of the arete and surf grainy jugs to the top. Descend by jumping off onto an adjacent boulder. A great problem for the grade with great rock and asthetic moves (the sit start is V5). ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
