Description

Some of the best bouldering in the area. The rock here tends to be steep, fine grained, and nicely featured. Most of the established problems fall in the range of V4 and under, although I am sure there is much potential for harder stuff.

The slope that holds all the boulders faces southeast. Boulders face all different directions and make a nice mix of sun and shade. This is up at about 8000 feet, so it tends to be cool, but I have actually bouldered here in March and on a calm, sunny winter day (rare up here) it is very pleasant.
Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Getting There

From the summit rest area, go down Happy Jack Rd about 2.8 miles and look for the sign that says "Telephone Road". This is Forest Rd 712. Go about a mile to road 712H and then follow 712H to its terminal end. Park here, and hike across the little drainage into the boulders on the facing slope. See the photo to get oriented - better yet, buy the Bagdonas bouldering guide.
