Description 

The Stache Boulder is a pretty cool new find. Thanks to Chris, Sarah and Aaron for finding it. An easy approach, perfect flat landing and cool features should make this a good stop on the circuit.

Getting There 

From the Tumbled Rocks trail walk just past Pete's Pebble and go around the corner. There will be some small jumbled talus blocks in the trees. Go up there. After a minute or so there will be a faint trail to follow and after an easy 2 minute hike the boulder will be obvious and in plain view. One of the easier approaches on the West Bluff. The boulder is in the same field of trees as Dumpster and Black Sheep.

Climbing Season

For the West Bluff Central area.

We had a good little session on this boulder yesterday and finished up both of the projects. Changed a few things and the name per The Gentlemans request.

Such a good boulder for DL!!! People need to get on this stuff! Easiest approach on the west bluff, perfect landing, cool holds and some nice moderate grades. Turns out it's a nice little summer boulder too. Yesterday was pretty perfect.

Good way to find it is to hike straight up from behind the Tree-hugger boulder approx 100ft. Very cool addition to the area and easy to find.
