Description

The Ugly Duckling Boulder sits on the slope just up from the road just right and down from the Pogues area. It is somewhat popular because of it's selection of three moderate (5.9) routes. You can expect to share with other climbers here most of the time.

The three routes get slightly harder (more or less) as you go from right to left. The center and right route are getting slightly harder due to erosion of the ground below the starts. Expect this to continue if some measures aren't taken to slow the trend.

Climbs, from Left to right:
Beautiful Swan
Ugly Duckling
Quackers
Thompson Canyon Details

Getting There

A left-to-right trail leads from the road a short ways up to the base of the boulder. Two minute approach.
