Description

Awesome boulders and wonderful route potential await those who are willing to explore. Cliff Mountain Boulders are an incredible roadside playground that offers excellent low, medium, and a few highball blocks.

Getting There

You have several options for access to HKL East:

  • To access Cliff Mountain and much of HKL East you will look to travel Hwy 23 (Orby Cantrell Hwy). 
  • To access the southeastern rim of HKL you can follow 653 and Rye Cove Memorial between Duffield and Fort Blackmore. 
  • You can also travel over the High Knob Road to reach a spider web of forest service roads to gain access to the back country of the HKL.
