Friction Test

California > San Diego County > N San Diego County > Culp Valley > Cottonwood Area

Description

This classic boulder problem was one of the earlier lines pioneered along Culp Valley Road. It climbs up the concave east face on thin edges and zenoliths with tenuous footholds that test your smearing technique.

Getting There

A solitary boulder just north of Vector Boulder and West of the Wolf Area. A small trail leads west from the Wolf Area parking right to the base of the problem.
