DescriptionExcellent limestone boulders located in a maze of rock on the campus of Columbia College.
Please refrain from scratching directions to popular problems into rocks! Details
I realize that many boulder problems are hard to find here, but all of Columbia's bouldering is on the campus of the college or in the state park. It hurts our case for access if any graffiti can be linked to climbers. Recently, I found that climbers had etched arrows into Lance's Arete pointing to Cellar Door and Dan's Cave. This can't happen here without risking closure (or as one of the faculty puts it, ";there won't be any more spongebobs on the weekends";).
Getting TherePark on the campus of Columbia College. Follow signs to the college auto shop. Walk behind the auto shop on a gravel path towards the observatory. At the 5th light post, turn left at an electrical box on the ground. Follow a climber's trail into the maze of rocks.
Note that parking on campus during the week requires buying a $2 permit.
