RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


This slightly misleading area is actually two boulders chock full of punishment, this "boulder" host about 6 to 8 problems (including variations) in the V1 to V7 range.

A good area to visit after warming up, the Punisher Boulder will deliver a few good minutes or hours of fun.

Getting There 

Use the standard parking area for Big Bend's main area and follow the trail north, parallel to the road. Head towards the obvious Flat Top Boulder, passing The Hueco Traverse Boulder. Punisher Boulder is the next set of leaning boulders.
