DescriptionEssentially at the base of the Sheep's Nose formation there are an abundance of wonderful boulders. I have spent some significant time working some of these problems and have only ever seen a handful of people around. This is probably not a year round location due to summers being extremely hot; however, I have bouldered here on sunny January days.
Edit:2/26/09 I have listed the boulders in a generic mode of A,B,etc. They may be listed as other names or numbers in other books. If anyone out there has any historical info on names and such I would be glad to update. Plus, I enjoy historical info on areas. Thanks!
Getting ThereFollow the directions to the Sheep's Nose formation. Once you turn right on Stump Rd., drive 1.8 miles to a dirt pullout on the right side of the road. This is just past a wash/dry creek bed with a fence running across it. There is also additional parking on the left side of the road directly across from the wash.
