Access Issue: Carver cliff is on PRIVATE PROPERTY! Details

Description [Edit]

The boulders at Carver lie on private property. Please read up on the access guidelines before climbing here

The bouldering at Carver lies on the hillside below the cliffs. There are currently around 120 established problems here and there is certainly potential for more. Most of the problems are in the V2-V4 range and there are a handful of V9-V10s and plenty in between.

Getting There [Edit]

There are two options for accessing the boulders at Carver. The first is via a small trail that leads up from the small pullout just past the bridge. After just a few meters you'll see the Bonzai Boulders.

The other option is to take the main trail that leads to the cliff band. This trail leads past the James Dean boulders. Once at the cliffs take one of a handful of small climber's trails downhill to the boulders.

Eric, I think the lack of Carver bouldering information may reflect Mr. Rosenbaum's desire to not have this information published. It may benefit climbers in the short-term to have this information so accessible but I think that the owner's wishes should be put first, for his sake and ultimately ours.

I see no problem with adding the rest of Carver's boulder problems to the site. There was a guidebook being written a couple of years ago by a friend of mine, but it was never released; there's no need to worry about secrecy here as long as people realize that everything is on private property.

Hey Eric- I have been trying to figure out a few of the problems, maybe mapping them on a PDF or something might help folks out. See you out there sometime.

Leave the mystery for the vampires... Apr 27, 2011
Carver Bouldering Guide - The guidebook was finally given permission to be printed by Mr. Rosenbaum, the property owner, about two months ago. The guidebook will be available to purchase for $10 after July 23, 2011. Checkout the Carver Bouldering Blog for more info.

The guide lists over 300 problems in the woods at Carver. Remember that it only takes two seasons of a problem not being climbed to make it look as if it has never been climbed. The guide will point out those "lost" problems and hopefully rekindle some interest in scrubbing moss for the greater good. Jul 12, 2011
