Description

Characterized by short boulders with an abundance of holds, this climbing area is close to the road and is only 0.4 miles from the main gate. This also makes it an easily accessible area when the main gate is closed for the winter.

It is a nice spot to take beginning climbers to get a taste of outdoor bouldering. Since there are plenty of low holds on many of the easier climbs, it is also a great place to bring young climbers. Many of the faces are moderately featured iron sheets with plenty of lines and mellow topouts.

There is a little of everything for everybody:

-For slab enthusiasts, the Moss Slab Boulder (problems 6 though 10) is pretty enjoyable.

-For those looking for some more burly climbs, the Brain Boulder (problems 21 through 26) has some classic hard problems.

-Climbs on the Dr. Seuss Boulder (problems 44 through 53) are especially great for kids.

This area has also recently been referred to as the "Iron Boulders".

Getting There

From the main gate, continue straight towards the main overlook. The parking area is at the first pull off on the right with picnic tables and a sign for the roadside trail. Hike straight down from the picnic area, across the roadside trail, past the second sign, and along a rocky path to some small boulders. Shelf-sitter will be the right-most boulder.
