Description

Barrel Ridge Proper is the actual ridge not including the Sandbox Boulder and the ABC boulder which are seperate. A nice ridge of mostly solid sandstone with problems around 15 feet tall, some perhaps taller and some shorter. Pad and spotter recommended.

Getting There

Enter the park and drive in the direction of qual wall. As you drop into the valley start looking to your right....Park 50yds past a car sized boulder 5 feet off the right hand (south) side of the road. This should put you below a few large pine trees, with a barely visible bluff on the south side of the road. Hike up the steep hill and around the right hand side of the bluff where a trail should become evident. From there take the trail past an 8ft mini sandstone pillar. The Ridge proper starts just past this. Following the right hand side of the ridge a short distance past some tall clean faces will take you to I.G.N, Steve Done, and eventually to what we started calling the Vadge Boulder (top out and see why). Going left around the ridge will take you to the Testtickler, and a good area for new development. (Despite the lengthy description the approach is 10min at max)
