Description 

The Wastelands is a collection of boulders scattered across the base of Queen Mountain which includes The Separate Boulders and The Larry Flynt Boulders. Problems here range from V-easy to V10 with the majority of problems in the V4 and under range.

Highlights here include The Mullet (V1), The Reacharound (V1 R), It's Da Oooze (V1+), Tinkerbell's Anus (V2), Whips, Chains and Lox (V3), Moral Wasteland (V3), Poker in the Front (V4) and Habanero (V4).

Getting There 

From the parking circle hike north along the old road as it passes through some low hills, turns east and then meanders towards the base of Queen Mountain. Break off along a trail heading east and follow it to the various boulders. The approach takes 20-45 minutes.

Starting from the ground climb up and into an undercut thin crack, getting jams where possible, to a committing reach into the final slot where the crack opens up. Easier moves lead from there to the top.The landing zone on this looks fairly bad but with careful padding it's actually pretty safe....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
