Description

The Terminator Boulder and surrounding boulders offer a variety of fun problems from V1 to V-double digits. Most of these problems are very steep, climbing out cave roofs. The centerpiece of this area is actually a splitter hand and finger roof crack, that was once a popular 5.12+ toprope problem (though it now appears The Terminator hasn't seen action for quite some time). The boulders face south, so they tend to bake in the sun, although since these are caves, most of the problems are largely shaded, with only the topouts exposed to the sun.
Some areas require a guide. Details

Getting There

This is a tricky spot to find. From the entrance station, park in the East Lot, and ascend the chains. Weave through the Small Potatoes, and the Big Time Boulders to arrive at the Nuclear Arms area. From the Grenade, descend for 50 feet to the south into the North Mountain Meadow. Locate a nice trail heading south through the meadow. The goal is the SE corner of the meadow. Climb onto rounded slabs, and descend to the south for about 40 feet to a large tier. Head West along this tier to the Terminator Boulder.
