Description

Mega classic lines along the trail past the washout/landslide boulder. This area consists of classics like Hail to the Chief, The Gavel, Wise Man's Fear, King Tut, Diamond Engagement, McBerkey, The French Exit, Wasn't, and Contact High.

Getting There

Hike on trail for 7 minutes past the washout/landslide boulder and 5 minutes past the log bridge. You will see the Gavel boulder on your left and the 420 boulder is 150 meters past the Gavel boulder. When you come to the Gavel boulder, look up the hill to the north (right side of trail) and there are a ton of classic moderates up in the talus field.
