Description

A tougher area just up the hill from Indian rock. Almost all Bouldering, though some of the routes are highball enough that a top rope can be helpful.

The area is usually in the shade, helped by some large trees that hide most of the rock from Indian Rock Ave.

Descent is a simple walk off the back of the rock.

If you're up to it, Nat's Taverse (V8) is a must do.

Nat's Traverse, along with Grizzly Peak Traverse at Grizzly Peak Boulders and Gomers Pile at Cragmont Park make up what was called the Triple Crown. The real challenge was to do all three in one session, and run between them (though driving is probably acceptable these days). For extra credit do all three three times each. 

Getting There

From the main rock, head up hill on Indian Rock Ave. The rock is about a block up on the right side. Approach time: 2 minutes from the main rock, 10 seconds if you park on the street by Mortar rock.
