Description

About a gajillion years ago, a large, house-sized block detached from the main cliffband. On the downhill side of the block, the wall is steep, featured, and pretty good for bouldering. Most of the problems start with difficulty and get easier the higher you go. It's a good thing, as the wall is about 25 feet tall.

A roof splits the right side of the wall and presents the opportunity for some really hard problems. Most established problems start on either side of the long, low roof. The left side of the wall is quite tall and generally unsuitable for bouldering, though The Traverse of the Gods climbs across this section.

The leaf-filled corridor is also included in this area and can be found about 100 yards east of the block. The problems are shorter and provide high quality bouldering with good top outs.

Getting There

Drive to the big parking area near the Red Bird statue. Walk into the large groomed open area and find steps that lead past the fence, down to the big block. To reach the leaf-filled corridor, head east along the cliff until you see The Overhang, a tiered roof formed by a 90 degree inside corner.

FINDING THE STAIRS: If this is your first time here to hit the boulder spots, find the parking lot by the tower. All references to 'stairs' you read refer to stairs that exist BEHIND the wood rails surrounding the tower, so go up to and start walking next to the rails and find where you need to climb over. There are actually 3 or for sets of stairs taking you down/up from the area. Sep 21, 2015
