Description

At the time of writing this, there are two large, clime-able boulders on the side of banks of the reservoir. The rocks are coated in a layer of fine sand from when they were underwater, but it's easy to brush off. There are usually some nice fishers hanging around on sunny days.

The boulders are very close to roadside rock and don't require many pads.

Getting There

Follow directions to get to Roadside Rock and park in the same place off the side of Hicks Road:
"Coming from San Jose, go down Hicks Road towards Guadalupe Reservoir. Shortly after seeing the reservoir on your left you will come to a stop sign. Less than a minute after the stop sign you will see Roadside Rock immediately to your right on the shoulder of the road. There is quite a bit of parking around."

Once parked, there is a trail on the opposite side of Hicks Road, directly opposing Roadside Rock that leading down to the banks of the reservoir. If you parked close enough to see Roadside rock, you shouldn't have to walk more than 1 minute to get to the trail.

After taking the trail to the bank of the reservoir, there are two boulders. If you turn right, you will end up at a tall, freestanding boulder that has the problem Should've Brought Pads. If you turn left, you will have to walk around the corner where the reservoir curves inward a little bit and cross the small chasm from created from the drainage pipe at the top to end up at a dark rock boulder higher along the bank with the problem Please Don't Break.
