Description

This sub-area is a catch-all for boulders along the base of the West Ridge. The approach is a bit longer when the river is high, so it tends to be less crowded. There are a number of great boulders in the vicinity of this area (though not part of this page), making this a nice place to visit if you're in the area to bag a classic on the Milton Boulder or in the West World area.

Getting There

Approach is dependent upon the depth of the creek, the parking available, and your desires for the day. You can approach this section of the ridge by parking at the Milton Boulder, wade the stream or boulder hop (Aug-ish to May-ish) to the base of the ridge and ascend. Or, you can approach by parking at the E end of the park, cross the bridge, hike on the trail paralleling the creek, and traverse the slippery 3rd class ramp around to the base of the West Ridge. Note, this last traverse is intimidating for small kids and particularly green partners. Then, you hike along the trail at the base of the W face of the West Ridge to your desired route.
