Description

Trailside Area is a collection of boulders spread between the Main Area and The Valley running parallel to the fire road and easily accessed from the main trails. Most of the boulders are well featured, but with plenty of bullet quartzite, and lots of classic lines.

Boulders in Order of Appearance:
Tsunami
Fireside
Eco-Challenge
The Adult
Gym Rat Kevin
Pinky and The Brain
Barb's Bequest

Getting There

The most popular access is to follow the same approach as for the Main Area (or Sentinel Buttress area). This area technically starts at Tsunami, but you will stay on the main trail until you get to the rock steps that curve up and right, where you will stay straight/left for the rest of the area (Fireside and Eco-Challenge are the first two boulders you see from the trail split).

For a secondary approach to the far side of this area, Keep walking up the fire road past the Sentinel Buttress trail, and take the trail at the top of the hill towards The Amphitheater. Follow that until you find a small trail on the right that will bring you to Pinky and The Brain.
