Description

Tucked away in the woods roughly five minutes walk from Boulder Natural is a collection of short walls and free standing boulders that doesn’t see much love, but climbing here can be a pleasant surprise. There are no crowds aside from the occasional lost hiker, the granite offers interesting holds and features (check out the big flake on Crash Pad Surfer or the unique green texture on the slopers of Hairway to Steven) and the climbs range from lowball mantels to 40 foot trad climbs. Interested? There’s plenty to keep you busy. If you’re plugging gear, jump on the Good Book or the Finger Crack and sample some of the best moderate crack climbs in the park. If you’re out to pebble wrestle, then don’t miss the agonizing mantel problem Magnificent Bastard or the desperate moves of Counterclockwise.

Getting There

From Boulder Natural, follow the trail towards Devil’s Den. Just past the Yosemite Boulder, where you step over a fallen tree, you’ll come into a wide open area. Turn right here and follow a faint path uphill if you’re going to the small walls and trad climbs. The Good Book will be the first climb you come to, about a minute up the trail. If you’re seeking the boulders, continue towards the Den. When you reach the Premier boulder, the trail will veer uphill and to the right. About a minute past the Premiere is a tall face on the right side of the trail that usually has chalk on it. This boulder is the start of the Ridgeline boulders.
