Description

This is a small crag with a couple trad lines and a bolted line that lies between Upper Security Risk and The Lighthouse (aka Solar Dome). It is a short, lower angle crag. Apparently, the bolted line was done by a poison ivy sensitive soul who got a full blown case while putting the bolts in...poor sod.

We stumbled upon this unknowingly and found mostly prickly and painful thorns at the base without obvious signs of poison ivy. In addition, after 3 days (and now 6) and stomping about in shorts...no rash or itch on this poison ivy fearing climber.

You can find this listed on page 50 of Mark Rolofson's excellent 2000 Boulder Canyon Sport & Adventure Climber's Guide. By the way, his guides are probably the best for accuracy and information on Boulder Canyon and some nearby areas.

Getting There

Hike up to Upper Security Risk and traverse left halfway to The Lighthouse (aka Solar Dome). You'll spy the bolts on the right side of the crag.

BTW, I'm guessing on the GPS location, since I didn't have a GPS that day.
