Description Suggest change

The Stonehenge Boulders is a collection of sizeable blocks scattered across the desert floor equidistant from Cap Rock and Ryan Campground and a short distance to the south from the roadside Fry Boulders.

An extensive circuit of 50+ problems up to V7 is found here with most being in the V2 and under range making this a great place for some easier bouldering. Notable problems here include the aptly named Picture Perfect (V1), the tall slab of Foot Fetish (V1+) and the crimpy Picture Perfect (sit) (V5).

Getting There Suggest change

The Stonehenge Boulders are best reached by following the loop "nature trail" which starts from the Cap Rock parking area and then breaking off to the southwest from the Pumping Monzonite Boulder along a well-worn trail. The approach takes about 10 minutes from the parking area.

Another option is to approach from the west side of Ryan Campground near Flight Attendant Rock, which takes about 10 minutes as well.
