A great Bouldering spot/ one of the best in perhaps the world!! Fall and winter are the best times to visit HP40, and has three bouldering competition's a year/- Chandler Mountain Challenge, HP40 Rocks, Triple Crown Bouldering series!! The rock is sand rock and is some of the best sloper's in bouldering!! Say thank you to the Schultz family for saving this pristine area for pebble wrestlers to enjoy.
