Description

Pocketopia is an ideal bouldering venue with generally flat landings and rock with an abundance of pockets.

Getting There

On reaching Tom's Place on the 395 take the East turn and drive passed a few houses. After about 4 miles on this road you'll reach Crowley Lake Dam. Cross over the Dam and turning right head up the road (take care as the road narrows). Once at the top of the hill the road turns to dust. After 1.3 miles take the obvious right turn onto the 4S03. Follow this road for just over 3 miles, until you come to a steeper section of road with a switchback. The Pocketopia escarpment is on either side of you.

Continue on for 400 yards until possible to turn right onto a faint track - follow this for a further 1/2 mile until you can see the boulders.

Some info about road conditions:
The dirt roads are decent. Four-wheel drive is definitely not necessary. There tends to be scruffy desert bushes between the mild tire ruts. High ground clearance vehicles will have no problems. For vehicles with medium to low clearance, brush will scrape against the bottom. I felt comfortable driving a 2003 Toyota Corolla, where it's old enough that I'm not too concerned about scrapes on the front bumper. Low ground clearance vehicles could probably make it ok... just depends on how comfortable you are scraping against scruffy bushes. I would maybe be worried about setting off airbags. Aug 25, 2013
