Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures Details

Description

The Carnival Boulders are a nice area just up-canyon from the 8 Mile campground. There are some great warmups and easy problems as well as a couple of fun moderates and at least one new-school highball (Big Happy or Legs Go Snappy).

South-facing, plenty of sun, and the usual short & steep approach.

Getting There

Park at 7.4 miles up the canyon next to a large rock outcropping on the side of the road. Walk straight up the steep hillside for 100m to reach the main area.

Additional info on the approach:

the "large rock outcropping" noted in the description of this area is also the top of Eight Mile Rock. The trail up to the boulders is about 200 ft east (back towards town) of Eight Mile Rock on the north side of the road. Look for what seems like a steep dusty wash up the side of the slope.
