Description

The reason(s) you came to Arthur's Rock to boulder lie here. This primary area is a grouping of some 15+ boulders that hold some of the best problems Arthur's Rock has to offer. With the exception of a few boulders, you will be primarily south of the bouldering access trail. Located below the access trail are classics like the Godzilla Boulder, Syringe Boulder, and the Warm-up Boulder. You will find shade in the forest on the north faces or some sun on the southern aspects.

Notable climbs in this area include: The Vice, Brick Pinch, Godzilla, Mainstreet, Ode to Failure, The Syringe, and Last Resort.

Getting There

Hike up the Arthur's Rock Trail until you reach the bouldering access trail, perhaps 20 minutes. Head up this trail passing the Fog That Surrounds area. Above this, there are two access trails that head downhill to the left. The first trail heads down to the southern sides of Drunken Master and Warm-Up Boulders. The second leads down to the north Side of the Warm-Up and Drunken Master Boulders, as well as the Syringe Boulder.

On the first access trail - on the east and south sides of the Drunken Master Boulder - you will pass problems such as Last Resort, Brick Pinch, Double Stack, before the boulder slabs out into the solo/highball Drunken Master. The next boulder downhill is the Warm-Up Boulder's South face with the Warm Ups, Clutch, and Le Crimp. Next to this is Mole People. If you circle right and uphill around the Warm-Up Boulder, you will reach the amphitheater with The Vice (on the Warm-Up Boulder), Syringe (on its own boulder to the west), and Ode to Failure (on the west side of Drunken Master Boulder). The second downhill trail heads directly from Shotput to this spot. Mount Olympus is just uphill from The Syringe, and further west and a little uphill is the Arete Boulder.

To reach Godzilla and Hank's Roof, follow a trail downhill from the Warm-Up Boulder by Clutch. Sister Boulder lies just downhill from Godzilla. The Beast Boulder, Crystal Pinch Boulder, and the Lizard Boulder are around the east side of the Godzilla Boulder and a little uphill.
