Routes in The Swamp Boulders

Description

This set of huge boulders doesn't seem to have seen much climbing yet but there is a good amount of pretty good rock here and it is really close to everything else in Boulder Natural. It gets its name from the swamp that you have to pass through on the approach but the landings (for the most part) are dry and flat.

If anyone knows anything about this area and what's been done please post it.

Getting There

These boulders are located a couple hundred feet past the Yosemite boulders. The easiest way to find them is by following the Devil's Den trail and looking to your left. After you pass the Yosemite boulders just wait until you see the huge boulder that is really three boulders leaning on each other. You can't miss it.

This place is awesome! The approach and the bugs aren't ideal but the climbs are totally worth it! Mouthful of Chalk, Chasm Crack, Poseidon, and Battle of the Bulge are all really awesome and would definitely get a lot of attention if they were in the zoo. Shadow of the Collosus definitely looks like a P-way classic. You'll likely to have the whole place to yourself, which is kind of nice. This also has a ton of potential, if people were ready to develop stuff here there could easily be 30+ climbs and maybe a trad route or two. More people should come here!


Not to be missed are the powerful Mouthful of Chalk, the beautiful Chasm Crack, the super-fun Battle of the Bulge, and the majestic Shadow of the Colossus. Jul 9, 2016

Went up there this past weekend. Super awesome spot and the lines are rad. Mouthful of Chalk is a Pway classic for sure. Looking forward to finishing it up next time! Oct 20, 2014

On the first boulder you come to walking from the Yosemite boulder there is a nice looking off width to hand crack on the east side, and a low angle off width on the south side. I was wondering if these had been climbed before. Fun little climbs that could use lots of cleaning... Sep 18, 2014

With this area receiving more attention in the past few months, does anyone thing it would be wise to break this area down further? I was thinking into four sections, Swamp Thing Boulder, Mad Hatter Boulder, Stoner Boulder and Chasm Boulder. Any thoughts? Just figured it might be easier to do it now with just a few routes in the database. Aug 16, 2014
