Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionOn January 6,2009 a layer broke away from a limestone cliffs near Mile Marker 8 on SR-14 causing a large rock slide which wrecked havoc on the road below. But in the process deposited several large boulders in the valley that created new possibilities for first assents.
As soon as the snow had melted beneath the boulders a group of climbers from SUU lead by Zach Bradford started cleaning up the area for bouldering. Several problems were put up but the summer arrived and the boulders were forgotten until the next fall. In the fall of 2009 Ryan Meeks started once again developing routes.
The current routes are mainly found on the largest boulder on the west side of the road.
Getting ThereDrive up the canyon until about mile marker 8. The road offers a passing lane, stay in the left lane and prepare to turn off the highway onto a dirt road that heads down to the creek below. This road is hard to see on the approach so if you see a large dirt pull off on the west side of the road you have gone about 100 yards too far.
If you pull off on the dirt drive back down canyon slowly, looking for the access road 50 to 100 down canyon.
Park down this road near the boulders, the local highway patrol doesn't want anyone to park in the large pullout near the road due to the potential for falling rocks.
