Description

Quaint boulders nestled among forests and furry woodland creatures.

Heinously sharp, large grain granite boulders- crystals are the dominant feature, also look for sloping aretes, crimps, and the occasional generation hold. Some highballs, lots of potential for new routes. really fun.

Shady and sunny, depends on aspect, etc.

Getting There

Exit 24 on I-295 in Maine. If coming from the North, take a left at the end of the ramp and follow obvious signs.

Once at Bradbury Mountain St. Park, take an immediate right after the gate to the lower parking lot. Head up trail at end of parking lot "Summit .6 miles".

Head up trail for a quarter mile-ish, past a few wooden staircases. At Y jxn with small map, head left to overlook. See large signs that state end of Bradbury Mountain State Park, and walk right past them. Head directly down hill.

You should run directly into Southern Boulder or slightly to skier's right of it. The remaining problems are a hundred yards climber's left of Southern Boulder.

Does anybody have a map showing the routes on the boulders. I've been there climbing many times but I don't know which route is which. Even a hand drawn sketch would be cool! Jun 10, 2009

Thanks for adding this area. I developed the majority of the problems here in the early 90s and will be posting photos of the boulders in the next week or so. Jul 23, 2010
Thanks for sharing the knowledge! I've always wondered about the names and grades of these problems. Bradbury is a very special place, and it's awesome that the landowner is so chill about light use.

What about the problems on the Southwest side of the upper boulder? I really enjoy the highball straight up the middle with the crux being the vertical section down low, crystal pinching gaston, etc. Jul 28, 2010

FYI: These boulders are on private land. Be respectful and clean up after yourselves. The landowner doesn't mind climbers; let's keep it that way. Jan 7, 2015
