Description 

The Wilson Creek Boulder (WCB) is awesome. Its a nearly free standing boulder where you can find, steep moves, great arêtes, big moves, and gymnastic flow. The WCB looks kind of small until you top it out, and at that point and time there is enough height to make you grip a little tighter...

Be sure to try out the "Star Chaser Arête" (V5) while your there.

Getting There 

Walk onto the smaller trail leading toward the campground. follow the trail past an informational podium and continue downhill. Walk in total about three minutes, looking to the right into the forest. You will see a nice overhung, dark boulder. This is WCB.
