Description

The furthest down the road of the main areas at Coopers. A bit more crowded than Tilted Tree or Roadside, especially with non-climber tourist hikers, who love to ask you questions.

Getting There

Drive to the end of the road, to where there is a concessionaire stand and a turnaround/parking area. Hike to the left of the building, staying to the right of the main overlook trails. Shortly, you will see an obvious break through a cliffline, which has some slab steps set into it. This will take you down to the Rattlesnake Trail, which runs along most of the great bouldering areas here.

This area definitely has some of the better offerings of mid-level routes at Cooper's, at least out of the main/more trafficked areas. Take a guidebook, though, there's several dozens of good problems not available on here. Jul 3, 2017
