Description

This area is located on the other side of the road from all the other climbing and is characterized by the massive highballs that are located along this trail. This area receives the greatest amount of sunlight so if you're here after a rainy day this will be your best bet. This is also the location of the roped climbing routes with double bolts for anchors at the top. Most of the climbing here is easy going, so this can be a good place for some new climbers to get some experience on some highballs. There are also several steep roofs here for those looking for some overhang, so this area has something for everyone.

Getting There

Instead of parking at the main parking area, continue up until you see the obvious pull-off on the left. Park here and look up the opposite side of the road to see the boulders. Walk down the road towards the main parking to get to the Tennessee Pusher boulder or walk directly up the hill from the parking to get to the Shaky Knees Boulder. Continue left along the trail from the Shaky Knees Boulder to find the roped climbing and some more bouldering.

I am a local, live 2 miles away and regretfully report the upper, "highball" area past the Blue Hole on the right has been posted "no trespassing" by the land owner on the right side of the road from the Blue Hole parking lot all the way up to the parking lot on the right about 1/4 mile.

I spoke to him and he said he pulled his family camper up the long upper sloped road and parked it and someone vandalized and then later, stole it. He said the land has been in his family for generations and he will be patrolling it. I offered to go to a lawyer and provide a "release and hold harmless" document that would remove his liability for accidents on the property for myself and a few local climbers that have been responsibly climbing this area for over 25 years, but he said no. If this changes I will update this post. Mar 21, 2017
