Description

Discovered by Scott Mitchell. The plateau is just a stone's throw from Clamshell Cave and has a handful (and counting) of pretty classic easy and moderate problems, plus a few mind bending harder problems.

Getting There

Two approaches available, depending on which boulders you plan on climbing. To start, park at The Fist boulder 5.2 miles up Icicle Road (just past the Mad Meadows wood sign). Then choose your own adventure:

Main area: Hike straight past The Fist and trend uphill to the left; 20-30 yards before a stream crossing, head uphill on a path to the right through some pines. Another 5-10 minutes later, you will hit the obvious Whale boulder (stay on main path, don't take any of the little side trails, unless you want to see the view). If you forget to turn right before the stream crossing, you will end up at Clamshell Cave.

The Switchbacks: At The Fist boulder, take a hard right on a path that soon skirts around a massive downed log, then stay left at the fork (sport climbing is off to the right), continuing up through an open field (hot in summer!) Cosmic Debris will be the first problem you encounter.
