DescriptionThis is the meat and potatoes of the Rock Maze. A relatively high concentration of bouldering problems are here, close enough to keep climbing shoes on when walking between problems. Many good problems are here in about the V1 to V5 range. Make sure to check out Southern Discomfort (V2-V3), Slot Machine (V1), and Muscle Corner (V5).
This area of the Maze is filled with fairly low problems or traverses with generally good landings. Easy for the ankles, especially with a crash pad.
Getting ThereFrom the parking area, head south up the main dirt road, then left up the first faint road, and follow this up the hill as it parallels the rocks that are on the left. When you come to a hill crest (about 3 minute walk), head east (left) and follow a trail that hugs the side of the rocks for a minute or two to a bunch of boulders. The area can be identified by an overhanging ledgey jug haul (Southern Discomfort), a triangle-shaped boulder (Breaking Point), and a square boulder with a large jug pocket a foot from the top (Slot Machine). Also, if you continue just past this, a long roof traverse is around the corner a bit (Muscle Corner).
