Description [Edit]

This Basalt Boulder is easily distinguished by it's West face which features an overhanging roof that jets out from the top about 4 or 5 ft. About 15 feet high, this large boulder has something for everyone who isn't afriad of falling from sketchy places. Highball face climbs, excellent traverses, and a nice large roof with lots of loose rock over the crest.

All climbing on this rock faces either West or South, So you will probably be in the sun unless the sun has already set or it's quite early in the morning.

Walk off the rock towards the main path.

Getting There [Edit]

Approach time: 5 minutes.

From the road, head uphill on the dirt road about 150 yards until you come to a gate which heads into the open space lands. Hop the gate or wiggly your way through the split in the fence and continue up the obvious path which heads uphill.

Follow this path uphill about 150 yards past several other rocks which hold problems until you reach a rock on the left that has a large roof on the uphill face that is about 15 feet high. It sits about 30 yards to the left of the path, though the roof is easily seen from the path.

This is Cattle Drive rock.

Aah, correction. I was baseing my statement on the discription given for the DNA boulder which is a bit confuseing. Thought these were two different names given for the same boulder. Turns out (clarified by the new Supertaco) that the DNA boulder is a seperate boulder all together and across the way form Cattle Drive. The DNA boulder is rightly named, but I still believe Cattle Drive is a name given after an assumed spree of FA's done decades after they were actually done. In which case at the time the bolder was known as crack rock to my understanding. Ahh, hell.... who cares what it's called anyway! Sep 18, 2007

Everything there is vague and confusing enough, that I'd agree with the observaton "who cares anyway?" Sep 18, 2007
