The Noir boulder is a large, nicely featured river boulder that touts a handful of excellent problems, and some extremely difficult projects. In addition, a small collection of diminutive boulders sit in close proximity to the Noir boulder. Expect a somewhat low volume of problems, with very high quality movement. This place has seen a lot of on-again-off-again attention over the years, and it's almost impossible to figure out who did what when. The obvious lines have been done for years, but the harder projects remain (I think) undone. Landings are generally okay, but this stone has some airy and fairly mossy topouts. Clean your exits before sending!
Getting There [Edit]
From SB, drive up the 154, and when you get to West Camino Cielo (per all the West Camino bouldering destinations) make a left. Immediately park in pullout. A quick downhill walk in to the creekbed will get you to the goods.
