Routes in Black Rocks Boulders

Access Issue: Closed March 15 through June 30 Details

Description

Boulders in the wash of the Black Rocks crag! Not anywhere near as plentiful as nearby Moe's, but unlike Moe's sandstone, the tough basalt here makes it climbable the day after a good rain. While there aren't a ton of boulders here, the ones that are here are way fun, and there is still a good amount of exploring and developing to be done. This area is part of the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve, and a desert tortoise sanctuary, so please be courteous and aware of the fragile desert ecosystem that we get to enjoy by sticking to the main trails/wash and not digging out or building any landings.

If you have any info on anything that I post in here that has previously been developed or FA'd or whatever, please feel free to let me know so credit can be given where it is due.
