Description Suggest change

The main boulder field below Sentinel Buttress filled with huge boulders as well as a number of smaller ones. This is where a lot of the early development occurred and contains a large variety of problems here from easy to hard.

Getting There Suggest change

From the fire road take the trail for Sentinel Buttress. As you approach the main cliff you'll see a sign for "Boulder Field". Take this trail to the right and you'll immediately see The Titan Boulder. The next huge boulder you'll get to is the Masterlock Boulder.
