Description Suggest change

A nice collection of boulders with good landings in close proximity to each other and not far off the road. This area is not talked about very much, but offers surprisingly good bouldering in a nice pine forest. The rock is typically good quality with a gritty texture bordering on painful in a couple spots. A variety of problems and short approach make this a good addition to a Lemmon bouldering circuit.

The Tucson Bouldering Guide lists 9 problems on two boulders. There are actually at least 7 boulders with well over a dozen problems. Boulders are given letter names here for simplicity. Actual problem and boulder names are unknown.

Getting There Suggest change

If parked at San Pedro Vista (Vista Boulder parking) hike down the road past the roadcut. Or park at the Green Mountain trailhead parking lot and go across the street. Hop the guardrail about 25m back down the road where the slope on the other side of the guardrail mellows out and head downhill. Eventually you'll see the boulders as the terrain begins to level off a bit. 5 minutes.
