Access Issue: Private property with public access. Be mindful to keep climbing accessible!! Details
Most bouldering is on private property, but access is allowed. Be respectful of the landowners, who run the still active mine. Minimize moss removal, to just the lip for cleaning. Do not shave the top of the boulders, so to speak. Stick to established trails when possible
Description [Suggest Change]
The Cube is an excellent beginner boulder with nothing harder than V4 and sports nine routes with easily protected landings.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
From the parking lot follow the paved zig-zagging trail up the hill, passing through the mine ruins. Continue on a dirt trail over a little bridge. Continue on this trail for a few hundred yards and then break off left and toward the creek, where large boulders are visible. The first set of chalked boulders are the Captain Kaboom Boulders. Routes up to V7 are established. Continue up past the Captain Kaboom boulders another few hundred yards to the Phantasia boulders. The boulders are just west of the creek, approximately 150 yards from the A-Frame, and perpendicular to it as well. Problems up to V11 are established. Most development is by Todd Helgeson, as well as Matt Lowber. From the Phantasia Boulders Cluster hike two more minutes up and left to a 13 foot tall "Cube" boulder with grass landings.
