Description

The Reserve is nicely concentrated bouldering area up on the South Bluff. All the problems here are top quality, with grades ranging from V0-V9. There are stand-out problems on the Lake Boulder, a free standing chunk of stone with problems all the way around it.  One notably is the Starfish problem V6. Many of the hard classics were established by Paul Jones and Eric Z., as well as many others who have frequented the area.

Along the way there is a short cliff band on the southern side of the rim. This is the Amazing Pillar area. A few good problems here, including maybe the best V6 in the park- The Amazing Pillar.

Getting There

Park in the lot near the boat launch along the South Shore Rd. From south-west corner of lot walk straight into the woods looking for concrete slabs. Trail goes straight up hill from here. Stay on trail til you reach rocks along the north rim of bluff. Look down and you should see the Lake boulder. 20-30min hike.

If you hike south from trail when it plateaus you can reach the Amazing Pillar area.

Last time I was up there, the trail was obvious. Good luck, and have fun.
