Description

Good bouldering across from the river from the Quarry, around Murderer's Bar rapids and the Mammoth Bar OHV area.

Relatively new area, potential for projects, (a couple hard ones exist already!) and good established boulders. More in the moderate range i.e.: v2/3 to v6/7.

Ethics: as a rule of thumb, boulder only here. A few exceptions have been made where very tall routes were bolted as sport climbs.

Getting There

From Auburn, take Highway 49 south to the Confluence, keeping straight on Old Foresthill Road (don't turn right to cross the bridge).

Past the bridge, drive about a mile and a half to the Mammoth Bar OHV Area signed turn on the right. Drive downhill to one of the established dirt parking areas before reaching the entrance station at the bottom of the hill.

Park up top (unless you have $10 for parking!) and walk down almost to the bottom; there is a pullout on the right with a sign that warns about the river rising rapidly. Trail goes past this sign, through trees and down to the river. As it flattens out at the bottom towards the river, the Shogun boulder will be on your left, hard to miss. Once at the water, head upstream to more boulders.
