The third area of Valleyland, consisting of 11 boulders. These boulders form a loop up the hill, starting directly from the trail. The highlight of the area is the Kingdom Set, a cluster of 5 boulders; 4 large boulders surrounding The Tower, a 30+ foot monster with incredible face-climbing and a devious roof to top it off. Bring A LOT of pads for this one!
Getting There [Edit]
From the Garden Trailhead, take the JBL trail. At .7 miles, the Chuck Boulder (with an obvious left rising crack) is sitting directly to the right of the trail. Another .1 miles past that, just before the trail takes a hard left over a two-plank wooden bridge, Pretty Face Boulder is obvious in the woods to the right. From this boulder, walk straight up the hill and reach the Kingdom Set in 2 minutes. 3 more boulders follow the straight uphill line from there, ending at 2K Boulder. The Vert Boulder can be reached by walking directly East from the Kingdom Set. From Vert, walking straight downhill will bring you to Vanagon and another good sized but dirty boulder, followed shortly by the trail. Alternatively, to reach Vanagon, you can start at Pretty Face and walk at a 45 degree angle to the right (facing uphill) for 300 feet.
