DescriptionThis is the furthest EAST cluster of boulders in the Cavalry Boulder Field Proper.
The tallest pointy one is roughly 25 feet tall and is easy to spot from the Alcove Area to the west when foliage isn't in the way. This area is named for a collection of fishing nets and lines that were once scattered about the base.
While the tallest boulder presents few worthwhile lines, the smaller rocks that lean against it offer some entertaining problems, including the gem of the Fishnet Boulders, the Fishnet Arete (V4).
Thanks to Derek S. for more accurate info on these problems.
Getting ThereFollow the directions listed to get to The Alcove area by following the main Greenbelt path to Cavalry then splitting off and walking through The Valley and up the hill on the other side.
From The Alcove, you will head EAST and you can see the tallest boulder through the trees from here.
