Description

Boundary rock is really a boulder not a cliff. There are two bolted routes on it, they check in at 5.8 and 5.8+. the climbing is slabby for the most part with a few steeper moves. They are fine routes but not really worth the hike unless you are like me and want to climb every route you can. If you are looking for a reason to check them out it might be the only place you can climb a couple 5.8's on a busy Saturday and be pretty damn sure you will have the place to your self. Might be a good warm up if you are on your way by to one of the other western crags up that trail.

Getting There

From the Black Jack Boulders hike the main trail that heads west out of the boulders and heads out to the Northwest Territories. About halfway to the NW Territories look for a cairn (rock pile) beside the trail and a large boulder to your right about 100ft off trail (cant really see it well when there are leaves on the trees). The trail that leads to the right and out to the rock isn't obvious so keep your eyes peeled.

Awesome mini-crag hidden away from the hordes. I put a good scrub to these routes yesterday, so get at them now that they're not lichen infested. May 10, 2015

This micro crag is mostly "lichened" over as of April 2013. A shame.
More power to Mike for climbing one of its 2 routes just days ago. May 2, 2013

This boulder was climbed in 1980-1 and then went into obscurity. Mar 4, 2013

hey guys, thanks for fixing it I got all confused lol. This is really a cool spot wish there were more potential at this boulder because the climbing is really fun and it deserves more attention than it gets. Oct 7, 2010

I swapped the photos around and it looks like Lee fixed up the descriptions. Nice spot that is almost always away from the crowd. I wish there was more of this style rock to climb there. Oct 7, 2010

I think there is a little confusion going on with which route it which. On the Map the two routes are switched and I think some of the pictures are under the wrong route.

According to the new Rumney guide:
The route on the left is called Out of Bounds (5.8+) and Boundary Route (5.8) is on the right which start out the cave. Oct 7, 2010
