Description

This group of boulders and chossy faces is located where the southern end of the ridge touches the valley floor. A few of the boulders really stand out as having quality problems, the Smith Family Boulders being the most obvious. The boulders can be rather exposed to both the sun and wind so keep that in mind when visiting.

This area is similar to The Volcano in that it has a high concentration of established problems in a relatively small area.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

From interstate, stay on the dirt road and pass by a large parking area on the left. Immediately after this is a left turn which leads towards The Volcano. A short ways further is another left turn which leads to The Volcano. Keep going on the main road as it winds slightly north. The group of boulders you are heading for should become obvious. Keep left at all the following forks and you will end up at a cul-de-sac. Park here and follow the moderately-well-defined trail to the Smith Family Boulders. From there, smaller trails split off to the other boulders.
