Great area, zero people, lots of great problems and plenty of high balls! There were lots of routes to top rope, rock quality was pretty good, though I did break off some edges here and there. Offwidth bouldering galore! We found the area between mile marker 19 & 20 on route 132. Camping spots close to the area were somewhat hard to find. Zero Cell Phone reception for me. You could boulder for years and never do the same problems twice. Much much larger than the over view pic, this area is massive! Mar 10, 2014
what do you mean by developed more??? this place has been climbed since the 80's and I personally have done just about every single thing that's possibly able to do out there.....there is at least 250 problems out there.. Mar 8, 2014
I'll be heading down there on sunday to check it out for the first time, I'm also hoping this'll be a good winter bouldering spot. Before this area gets developed further, does anyone have access info? Is this public land? Feb 19, 2014
just went out there yesterday to send a's perfect right now temperatures about 40 degrees very little snow on the ground and all the rock is dry!! Jan 19, 2014

I went today. You do need boots and there is a bit of wind, i'd say 15mph or so at miday. Cell service was super shotty for verizon. Fun place though. Jan 4, 2014

Pawilkes- the area is huge & spread out boulders face all directions. I could see wind loading snow in certain areas but I bet it'd be tits in 40+ temps with some trompin boots to post hole through to said destination. But I'd just save yourself a trip and pm the locals who prob can give you the quickest answer. Dec 15, 2013

Anyone know what kind of winter sun this place gets? I'd love to have a place closer than Joe's/Triassic to go to in the winter. Dec 15, 2013

The boulders are located only about 13 miles west of Nephi (not 20 as the description suggests). Nov 13, 2013
