Description [Suggest Change]

The base of Big Star wall is home to roughly 20 climbable boulders. The Sandstone Warrior guidebook lists an area they call Railroad Boulders but provides no detail about specific problems. Most if not all of the problems have likely been climbed in the past. This page will allow some documentation and perhaps clarification about the history of the problems. All names given here are just working titles. If you know of existing names for a problem just leave a comment or send a message and I'll update the info. Increased traffic to these boulders will hopefully keep them from getting overgrown again.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Hike from the main parking lot to the north access point at Railroad Rock. Head straight down to the tracks and walk south for about 500' to an obvious trail leading away from the tracks toward Big Star Wall. The main hiking trail weaves through the middle of the boulder field.
