DescriptionLarch Boulders is composed of granodiorite boulders, and has some quality boulders. They can be a bit rough on the fingers after an afternoon of sending though. Larch of composed of 3 main areas, with many lines cleaned, and many more to be cleaned and sent. There is potential for over 100 lines here. Everything from 30' problems to 30+' traverses. The average problem here is probably 10-15' tall. A huge variety of problems, including slabs, overhangs, and steep faces. Vb-V9 problems so far.
Please don't block gates, or the roads, as 4x4 drivers use the area a lot, as well as DNR crews and logging crews.
It tends to snow up here by December, and isn't clear of snow until about May/June. However, a buddy and I did a fair amount of bouldering out here in January when it was sunny, and 3' of snow on the ground. Since the boulders are in the sun, they dry out quickly.

Respect temporary logging closures Details
If there is any current timber activity, please respect these crews and climb at another location. Do not block gates and exercise caution due to other uses such as ORVing and hunting/shooting.
The google maps link takes you there from Camas. There is 3 different locations, and each area description will include a google maps link to the parking area, and a location marker to the center of the bouldering area.
