moving on up to the slopers

  • Avoid private land on approach to public areas MORE INFO >>>
  • Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Sit start at the middle of the sideways 'y' formation, left hand on the shelf-like hold, climb up and work left up the sloping face, walking your feet over on the rail below.

    (v3 variation: start matched on the crimp below the 'y' formation.)


    Just up the small hill (away from Saddle Sore and the Sweet Arete) from the firepit clearing. The boulder will be on your right (turn to look back in the direction of the road down in the gully).

    Jim Bowers playing on the Horsepens Boulder. It's more fun (and more slopey) than it looks:
