South Bliss

This area sits a little further off the road than the other zones, but the extra walk is well rewarded with great views of the Lake and several well featured boulders.

A five to seven minute stroll due east will get you to the top of a hillside that looks over the lake the lake, here you will find classics like the Rusty Nail (V2) and Solar Eclipse (V3). Look left from there and you'll see Battle Cry(V6), and down right in the Gully below Rusty Nail is the new test piece Ground Zero (V6-R)

Not quite as concentrated here, but some of the potential sends are worth the effort.

Getting There

Heading south along the lake, look for a pull out on the right, park and walk across road and a few minutes down the slight hill to the boulders.

..Feel free to update me on names and FA's ... May 6, 2011
That boulder problem is not named Solar Eclipse.
I did the FA of that problem including the direct finish in 1991, no pads.
I also did many of the other problems listed in this area many years before the Hatchets claim to have found it, between 1989 and 1991.
No pads. Jul 21, 2010
