This is a relatively large boulder before the mouth of the canyon. Prob 15 min from town this is the closest natural climbing formation you will find in Bakersfield.

Access is off the 178E then go north of Rancheria Rd. The River rats have a river access area here at the bridge. Look east across the bridge/road. You will see a large Boulder on the rivers Left (aka the south side of the river) Jun 6, 2016
