Description

Sunny and shady sides. Good quality rock. Not as popular as many areas. Secluded (from people, not the road).

The sunny side (east) currently sports a lovely bee's hive in the north most big pocket. This currently makes most of the east routes at least a grade more difficult (due to the one handed bee slapping)!

Descent
The south side has a tenuous sequence starting above the SW corner then down and right (facing the rock) using an undercling to the knobby face - perhaps a pad and spotter.

Getting There

Follow the trails around to the north side of Stoney Point. This boulder is located right at the edge of the giant concrete pour area by the train tracks and has a tree growing on it's west side.

Beehive there since 1999, yes. Dec 10, 2015

The east side beehive has been around as long as I can remember, which isn't that long (1999?). The boulder is still a nice stop before finishing the day at Hot Tuna, assuming starting the day low side of the road and ending high. I assume it will again be there this weekend.

Yeah that concrete monstrosity around the railroad tunnel entrance is a bloody envoronmental disaster.

This used to be a pretty nice spot. May 26, 2007
