Description

One of the standout boulders of the Trailside Area, Franks Boulder is seemingly designed for bouldering with it's long rails and incuts over mostly good landings. Problem range from V2 to V7 with Frank's Roof (V3), Short Sloper Traverse (V4), Frank's Problem (V4) and the Sloper Traverse (V6) being amongst the best.

Getting There

Hike past the Ranger Station, the trail junction and the turn-off for the Flash Gordon Area and continue along the trail over several small hills until the trail flattens out again and the boulders come into view on the right. Cut right following a faint trail (which gets better further on) and work slightly right and uphill until the boulder comes into view.
