Description

This rock is the one you are thinking of when you think of bouldering at Sanitas. It is the first major rock you come to when you take the trail up the hill, marked by a big pine tree right in the middle of the boulder.

Problems here are fun, but not too hard, with a couple of interesting easy highballs and a genuinely fun and long V2 traverse with lots of V0 moves and probably only one spot of V1/V2 trickiness.

This is a pretty nice spot to take a beginner, but if you lap the traverse enough times, you can still get some good exercise. It is close to other worthwhile boulders as well.

Getting There

Walk up the Sanitas trail, veering left when possible to reach the boulders up the hill.Look for a climbing access sign when you get near the top of the hill and then as you look up and right you will see a chalked-up boulder with a big pine tree right in the middle of it.
