Description 

The Boulders are two large limestone boulders that are tall enough to warrant a rope and hold a number of fun face climbs, albeit short. An Unnamed 5.11c is the lone bolted route on the boulders, but recently someone added a number of toprope anchors, so it is easy to toprope the many different faces.


Getting There 

To the left of the Main Wall sits the Boulders. Hike past Youth and the approach to The Long Haul before heading left to get to the base.

The bolt fairy has been sprinkling its magic bolts. The boulders have 7 new routes. It is one of the best places anywhere to take a class or group of beginners because it isn't as hot as the rest of the area, you can easily set a load of top ropes, you can hear over the roar of the highway, the routes are close together so a few instructors can watch a number of students, and the routes are short for the most part so if someone is struggling and hang-dogging they won't be there all day, and if you have a big group they rotate quick.

Traditionally the large boulder is the Wisdom Tooth and the smaller bolder is the Molar Boulder.

Does anyone know what the two newish routes to the right of the unnamed 11 and 12 on the Molar Boulder are rated?
