Routes in Cave Boulders

Description

The Cave Boulders consist of two over hanging boulders one higher on the hill then the other, with the top out for the Bottom boulder being the flat space in front of the Top boulder. The Top boulder is the steeper of the two, and offers the most challenging lines.

Getting There

To get there starting at the bridge over the St Croix walk along the road that leads south past the pot hole trail parking lot. the road will start to slope gently downward and you will get a view of the river to your left. Also on your left will be a stone wall at the edge of the road, walk along this wall until it ends. From there walk down into the woods and along the wall, basically making a u-turn around the end of the wall. there is a foot worn trail that will take you to the boulders fifty feet or so. It is also possible to hop the wall at one point and come right to the boulders but it is easy to miss if you don't know what you are looking for. So if this is your first time best walk along to the end of the wall, then back along it till you find the boulders.

It's good to know the actual beta for this stuff. My first bouldering experiences were up at Taylors. We use to do all kinds of variations on the cave boulder and never knew what was what. Super fun little spot! Now that I have a few more years under my belt I would love to get back up there. Apr 11, 2009
