Description

A quiet and humble local bouldering area near Princeton University. With some imagination (and a lot of desperation), there is much fun to be had here.

Getting There

From Princeton University, drive down Witherspoon street well past the downtown, and take a left on Cherry Hill Rd. Continue uphill and take a left on Stuart Rd. Park at the intersection of Stuart and Bouvant Dr.

The entrance to the woods is a little-marked trail opposite Bouvant. GPS Coordinates: (40.371293, -74.676661). Here's the Google Street View: goo.gl/bxERNO

The best way to find the boulders is to just walk straight into the woods until you see the Wave boulder or something else you recognize. Or you can attempt to follow a vague trail by sticking to the slightly-barer talus.

Here is a good map showing trails: njtrails.org/trail/mountain…

Another good parking spot is on Cherry Hills Road past Foulet Dr.
