Description

As compared to the Contact Station Boulders at the beginning of the trail, the "Alchemy Area" isn’t as classic. That being said, these shorter blocks are a very fun place to climb and visit after climbing all the more classic lines. Several of the shorter lines in Alchemy are worthwhile and challenging, and the forest setting beautiful and often secluded.

There are four overhanging boulders (three along the trail, "Fire" is toward the road a bit more from "Earth") that are from 10-13 feet in height, and full of crimps and small pebbles. Lots of thin flakes and all have solid landing areas. Quiet and private.

Getting There

Take the Split Rock Bouldering Trail, and turn left onto the spur. Follow specific boulderfield access/directions in the GHSP Bouldering Guidebook, or GHSP's Rakkup Guidebook App
