Description

The first large area of boulders you pass by when approaching from the road. Now more of a "clearcut", as many of the boulders are surrounded by tall, dense brush.

You will use a different approach depending on which side of the clearcut you are going to. See directions on the individual pages or pick up a copy of the excellent 'Western Washington Bouldering' which makes navigating Gold Bar much easier.

Getting There

Approach as for the 5-Star Boulder, but continue on the trail uphill until you run into a recent clearcut. Bushwhack uphill and across the clearcut until you hit the main gravel road. Follow this road uphill until you eventually run into a fork. A right will get you to the eastern areas, a left will get you to the western areas.
