Description

Per Nick Reecy:

It may be safe to say that the quantity, density, and quality of the boulders found at Pink Floyd outshines the rest of Nine Mile Hill.

Pink Floyd is the far west boundary of the Mecca Area. The boulders are those which are located at 6,200 feet below the canyon's west wall above the Mecca area.

The style of bouldering is predominantly vertical, but many slab and slightly overhung problems exist as well. The area is sublimely secluded from the highway that intersects the canyon and unlike Main Mecca, Pink Floyd's soil isn't nearly as nasty after becoming wet, and the canyon wall makes for early shade during late afternoons.

Getting There

Per Nick Reecy: from the Mecca parking area, go through the green gate (close it behind you), follow the foot path downhill, cross East Creek, head uphill, make a right on the dirt track, head north by northwest for a few minutes, make a left onto a well worn foot path, head west through a sage brush meadow toward the west canyon wall. The trail will eventually deposit you at the Main Boulder. At a brisk pace, you can reach the area in about 10 minutes. It is approximately a 0.5 mile, one way, to reach the center of the area.
