DescriptionThe Contact Boulder is more obscure and tricky to find than the others in the Contact Station Area, but it's one of the best.
Contact has a nice, low, steep roof on the far right end (when viewed as looking at the main, long front face) and a handful of fun vertical problems all along its main face.
Be sure to try out "Full Contact", "Copperhead", and "Heel or Peel".
There are a plethora of other contrivances and test-pieces to be had here if you are interested. I would rather keep the content listed to the most straight forward boulder problems. Ask around or make up your own!
Getting ThereWalk the road past the pay-booth. As you're walking down the road look to the left for a gravel road with a DO NOT ENTER sign on it. This sign is to keep out traffic from going to private property. Walk down and stay on the road (don't turn right as to continue further downhill). Look for a bulge in the landscape about 40 yards downhill and this is the rear of the boulder, you cannot see the main face since its oriented downhill.
No worries here, I assure you this is park land and that I have verbal permission from the park to post this boulder on Mountain Project. You wouldn't see it on here otherwise.
