Routes in The Hidden in Plain Sight Boulder

Description

This huge chunk of granite is hidden above the mini boulder ravine on a small hill. The rock here is bullet proof rock which is comparable to donner summit's granite. With a handful of very high quality routes, it is definitely worth the extra 15 minute hike. Currently there are 6 problems ranging from V-easy to V6 and one project, which looks easily harder than V10.

Getting There

This boulder is very tricky to find, but well worth the effort. From the Atari boulder walk a few yards further until u see a faint side drainage leading up and right on the right side of the ravine. Follow this ravine to the top of the ridge. From here there is a small field with a road crossing it. Walk to the road then look up the small hill. About half way up the hill there is the hidden in plain site boulder. Hike up through the bushes until u are at the base of the boulder.
The second option is to start out at the scenic boulders and traverse along the ridge till u hit the open field, then cross the field to the road and keep going to the hidden in plain sight boulder.

Sorry not yet. The boulder is roughly 15 feet, so pretty good height and one of the taller boulders in the area. Apr 19, 2009
