Matthew Bashista on Unnamed (V6) in the Matrix are...


The Matrix Area holds a high concentration of V1s making it an excellent choice for beginning boulders wanting to cut their teeth on Gretna’s diabase. It also has two stand out climbs Breadloaf (V4) and Crazy Game of Pokers (V6) either one of which is reason enough to visit the area. But combine the routes here with those at the adjacent Upper Matrix and you have the largest concentration of problems in Gretna! Now how’s that for serving your V0-V8 bouldering needs.

Getting There 

Locate the Prow/Matrix Areas access trail behind the Highball Boulder. Take the trail up steep hill until it levels off along the ridge line. Continue along mostly level ground passing through the bottom of the Prow Area. A hundred feet before you reach the Upper Matrix look to the right, downhill for a the tops of a jumbled mess of boulders – this is the Matrix Area. You will access the area from the top of the boulders with all problems starting from the flat ground at their base.
