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
