Description

Miles of blocks. Maybe untouched, though that seems unlikely. But zoom in, wayyyy in on the map view. Looks like a fun place to camp, ride MTB, explore surrounding area of the Swell, and maybe send some sweet boulders.

Getting There

Roadside along the "Moore Cutoff", from the tiny "town" of Moore on Utah 10 to I-70 Eastbound (Rt 803 on the map). Head east a few miles from Moore, as road descends through a cut in the cliff and voila, look left. Boulders are strewn below the cliffs of "Cedar Ridge" for about a mile.

The boulders look very tempting from the road, but 96% of them are complete choss. A fair bit of hiking around to look at each will reveal a diamond in the rough, but most will disappoint. Still, a gorgeous environment with great camping and few people. It can be a nice break from Joe's and Triassic.. Be prepared for adventure, some blocs aren't easy to get off of! Jan 5, 2018
People have been quietly climbing there for a while. It's more like 85% choss with about 15% able to clean up nicely. There are some massive bishop size boulders there. The entire area is called Molen Reef with many sub areas, and it's huge! There is another area being developed by Noah Bigwood and friends called Roxaboxen north east on the blm road off of the main road. Molen Reef is the overall massive area with a south and north of the main road; then there are many many pockets of boulders within it--one as mentioned above called Roxaboxen and another area Shyanne Williams started to develop called New Bishop--named for its huge high ball boulders. There are still hundreds of FA possibilities to be had. I don't have FA data on the boulders in Roxaboxen. There is another area Noah mentioned within Molen Reef; I think he calls Spheres deep in the reef, but I have never been there. Mar 18, 2018
