Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionCandyland probably has the best camping in all of Ibex. Don't ruin it by leaving trash around! Broken bottles, bullet casings, and nails litter the area, so please pick up after yourself, and even others to help maintain this wonderful piece of land.
The bouldering gets lots of sun, so best to come early spring or in the fall to get the best friction. Most of the rock in the area is the typical bullet-proof(seriously) quartzite.
The first big bloc you'll come across is the Loaf boulder. The uphill side has a few problems that come out from under the roof onto the face. About 100 yards ahead is a triangular shaped boulder with an excellent yin-yang shaped crack on the north side.
From here, continue walking for about 10 minutes STAYING NEAR THE VALLEY FLOOR. The boulders on the hillside are all junk :(
You'll pass a tall boulder with two horizontal cracks going all the way around. This is the Wonder Bread Boulder, and marks the start of the Upper Candyland area, which has a better concentration of easy problems.
Look north for the tall, pointed, most prominent rock(Pyramid Boulder). Just downhill from there are a handful of warmups, as well as The Hamster, which climbs through a small hole in the roof.
The next cluster of boulders to the north have a few problems too, most notably a problem called Jesus, V8, which starts sitting on the right side of a hollowed out boulder, making big moves left along the arete before moving straight up on crimps.
This is adventure bouldering at it's finest! Keep your eyes and your mind open for fun problems to climb, they are all over the place.
Getting ThereDrive south on Tule Valley road for 8.5 miles until you reach the 3-way intersection, take a right.
Drive down this road for another 5.5 miles. The road will split, but keep to the right, and drive for another 2 miles, at which point you'll be able to turn left up a road that leads you up into a grove of junipers beneath the mouth of a small canyon.
The boulders are all scattered along the hillside to the north of the camping.
Gets nice early sun and the approach is about 15-25 minutes depending on which boulders you're going to
