DescriptionOne of the easiest to locate areas at Bone Mountain is the Moose Bones Area. Named after the moose skeleton found beneath the cave.
This area has just recently (Fall 2014) been developed but hosts some high quality routes that would likely become popular if repeated and there is room for more.
Home to two great roof cracks, an airy full-length bolted pitch, and a great crack waiting to be cleaned up.
CLOSED IN SPRING FOR PEREGRINE FALCON NESTING
Getting ThereFrom the main cliff: Hike right from Solstice Slab through various sections of rock. After a few minutes the land drops down and you will find yourself beneath an enormous 25-foot deep cave. This is the Moose Bones Area.
From the approach trail: If you are looking to hike directly to this area from the approach I'd recommend staying a few hundred feet away from the base of the cliff where the trees are thin and hike along the cliff until you spot an enormous solitary boulder down the hill on your right. Then punch up toward the cliff and look for the obvious cave.
