Description

The rocks are very sun-beaten and depending on snow run-off, water levels can be high and quite chilly.
The land owners are fine with climbers who are respectful Details

Getting There

Take highway 2 east or west and just before (if heading east) or just after (if heading west) mile marker 33, park in the gravel pull-out. Walk east about 2 telephone poles worth of distance and on the other side of the road there is a faint path that will lead you beyond a private property sign. Follow that path to the beach where the climbing is found. The first massive boulder you see during approach is the Beach Boulder. Further east will lead you to Moon and others in development.

Kelly Sheridan's book suggests that climbers down-slide the main Beach Boulder via Slip 'n' Slide. I found it much easier to lower off of Buqua and drop to a pad. A spotter will help keep you off the rocks if you botch the drop. Jun 21, 2016

We went there today, getting down near Split Rock no trespassing sign (couldn't find the faint trail), and walked back and forth along the river between the bridge and way past split rock... We couldn't find any boulders that look like this :( One big boulder was there but very overgrown and slippery. There's some climbable looking boulder on the other bank just past split rock but the river cannot be crossed so I guess it's approached from Reiter rd.? Or by kayak maybe.
Is the mark on the map here accurate? Sep 20, 2015

I could not find any documented climbs or settings for most of this area (minus the Beach Boulder). We spent some time playing and decided to share what we came up with. If these have already been established please let me know and FA/ratings will be corrected. Jul 28, 2009
