Description Suggest change

This amazing, alpine bouldering zone was first discovered by Ben Scott nearly 15 years ago. Ben and company cherry picked through some of the nicest lines but left plenty to be done still. A recent wave of development has added nearly 30 new problems up to V13 featuring many log raft landings built out by Matt Poiez.

Getting There Suggest change

Although there are multiple ways to get there, my preference is to hike in through the West Branch Trail. Take the WBT about 2.5 miles until you are across from the boulders, look for the small trail on your left that takes you through a campsite until you can find the log crossing just upstream from the campsite. Expect a 1 hour hike in on mostly flat terrain. Ben Scott used to mountain bike in along the canal on the other side of the valley, which is definitely the adventurous way to approach but can make for a quick and fun descent.
