Description

To the left of the Beer Can Crack and its greeting central courtyard area.

This boulder is a few minutes hiking down the left side of the main wall (the Bear Caves as a whole is basically a giant wall). As you traverse down the left side of the main wall area, you will come across an obvious dirt trail on the right side of the wall that leads from the top of the boulders, down them allowing you access to the trail that leads along the bottom of the boulders where you are standing.

As the path up is on your right, a row of sloped boulders is on your right. You can easily walk up most of these boulders.

Continue past that first trail down, and continue until you reach the point where the wall ends and makes a 90 degree angle, where it continues.

The Moloch Boulder is where the trail splits, one takes you next to a boulder that has 3 cracks running up to the top. The other trail takes you down in elevation slightly, bringing you simply to the other side of the Moloch Boulder.

The Moloch Boulder has a perfect flat topout, about 15 feet off the ground.

Getting There

Continue past that first trail down, and continue until you reach the point where the wall ends and makes a 90 degree angle, where it continues. The wall will make a ߆ shape. In the center of the L is a large boulder that appears to have possibly fallen off, and is laying on the ground making for a nasty fall without (or with) pads.

The Moloch Boulder is where the trail splits, one takes you next to a boulder that has 3 cracks running up to the top. This is the Moloch Boulder. The other trail takes you down in elevation slightly, bringing you simply to the other side of the Moloch Boulder.
