Description

This is a good beginner to intermediate bouldering area with a short and easy approach. Living close by to the reservoir, I started climbing here when my roommate and buddy Mike couldn't belay me on the days I wanted to climb. Though most of the routes are relatively easy, it still felt great to train and scrape up my hands on the rough granite. The climbing area is south-facing and generally warmer and sunnier than the climbing in the canyon by the stream. This is a great place to come if your partner bails on climbing plans at Lemon. There are other unclimbed boulders in the area scattered about that I didn't take the time to list.

Getting There

Follow the directions for parking/access as if you were going to the sport/trad climbing East/West sector. Walk for two minutes or so down the path towards the stream, but be on the lookout for a faint path left of the dirt road that deviates just right of a climbable looking rock outcropping. The rock outcropping should be visible from the road. If you pass the campground latrine, you've gone too far.

If you explore both sides of the creek up in the hills, there are hundreds of small formations worth climbing on in every direction. I know a lot of people that have explored all around the area. There are some cool things, but the area has not seemed to yield any true gems just yet. However, the further you hike, the more promising the rock gets. Dec 30, 2017
