Description Suggest change

A sandstone mesa overlooking the city of Boise. Table Rock sports a large electric cross and is easy to find. The rock quality ranges from loose grit to bulletproof slabs depending on what area you are climbing in. In the summer get here early in the day as there is little cover from the sun. This is the most easily accessible bouldering area to Boise and sees a good deal of traffic in the peak climbing season, but there are enough areas that crowds seldom form. For more complete information on Table Rock climbs and other Boise area climbs check out "Boise Climbs" by Sandy Epeldi.

Note of caution to climbers looking to get on roped routes: a number of hangers and anchors have been removed over the years. Do not attempt to climb a route at Table Rock without first checking the hardware to ensure a safe experience.

Feel free to comment if corrections are needed.

Getting There Suggest change

To get to Table Rock follow Broadway Ave. north until you pass the hospital and the road curves left. If you are on State St. follow the road east until the road curves to the right. Reserve St. is the road jutting off of the curve here. Follow Reserve straight and it will curve up the hill and become Shaw Mountain Rd. Follow Shaw Mountain Rd to the top of the mesa where you will park.
