Description

This upper boulder is located a 5-to-10-minute hike from the road and is at the base of the cliffs on the ridge above the road. From the lower boulders, this looks like a flat rock with no height to it at all. It is obscured by vegetation on all sides, and the A frame is around the back, but is easy to identify as you hike around the right side of the larger boulder. The A frame houses the best problem at Silverbell, The Rails (V6), as well as the drilled-pocket problems (V4-5).

Hiking around the left you will notice a large undercut. This is the Javelina cave. I have never actually seen the Javelina, but there is much evidence (crap) that they inhabit the cave.

Getting There

The largest boulder is easy to see from the lower boulders, but there is no clear trail to it. Hike away and you will get there. If you get lost in roughly 75-100 yds. then you should probably stay at home in the first place.
