Description

The Bowling Ball is a separate formation from the main crag at Marble Caves, although clearly visible along the ridgeline to the northwest. Premium white, yellow, orange, and blue streaked limestone, and host to a number of fine routes, including Marble Caves' most difficult offerings.

Getting There

Follow the primary directions for Marble Caves; at the pasture, rather than heading left for the main wall, continue driving straight for ~5 minutes. Look for a small boulder on your left with a cairn on top, adjacent to a small pullout. The climbers trail is slightly vague, but generally head downhill and a little left for about 5 minutes, and you should come around the left side of the crag.
