Access Issue: Seasonal Closure - 2018 Update Details

Description

This south facing, shaded bouldering out crop is situated close to the road but up on a hillside shelf creating a sense of isolation, the rock is of quality Boulder Canyon granite with all the dimension to classify this as a classic bouldering area.

Getting There

Drive up Boulder Canyon for approximately 9.4 miles, 0.2 miles past Coney Island Cliff, and you will see the protruding, bulged rock, upslope within the trees, on the right, north side of the road. It is best to park up at the creekside picnic area on the left, south side of the road and walk back to the east to the area.

Once you park at the creekside picnic area on the South side of the road, cross the road and walk back East (towards Boulder) for ~3 minutes. The rock is about 20 yards up from the North side of the road - you will see it before you begin going around the bend. Apr 8, 2015

There is a perfectly good pullout just below the boulder on the north side of the road. It's the first pullout on the right after Coney Island heading west. Mar 13, 2017
