DescriptionSunny exposed area sitting high above the main Pond area. Good to great rock in spots. The boulders with brief descriptions as you approach them.
- Boulder A
-The back side of this boulder has several short steep problems and link ups ranging from V1-V6
- Matt's Phalus
- Tree Slab-Named as such because if you look up from the Cube it is the large boulder that sits right on the edge of the drop off and is slabby on that side with a large pine tree infront of it.
-Committing V7 Swiss Cheese left center of face
-A beautiful swath of unclimbed rock between these 2 problems should yield something quite hard.
-The tall slab on the opposite side of the boulder is V0+ and 20+ feet
- Lost Descent- No good way to get off this thing. The huge chunk of stone that sits 50' to the left of the Tree Slab.
- A few other boulders are behind and to the right of the Lost Descent boulder
-Sadly Brick Top V3/4 only saw a few ascents before a key hold broke, I don't think it will go, but I could be wrong, at least V9 or 10 if it does with an undesirable landing
Getting ThereFrom Nascar head up the ridge you are on until you reach a kind of saddle just below a band of chossy! light colored rock. This saddle can also be reached more directly from the Cube, by heading up the hillside staying to the left of the drainage and eventually reaching the saddle. Scramble through the choss rock directly in line with the ridge, then up and right to a little wash. A natural bridge leads across this not too far from the drop off (kind of cool). Continue to your right and you will come to the boulders shortly. Approach takes about 15 minutes.
