Description Suggest change

On the east side of Mt Scott hides a cache of strong boulders, mountain shade from summer sun, and a canopy to dampen the north winds in the winter.

So far the star of the show is the Charles Mingus boulder featuring 3 vibe check high balls, Haitian Fight Song being the beauty and Faubus Fables the beast.

One Foot In The Gutter Traverse on the Thelonious Monk boulder will get even the most athletic a solid pump if you compete the 40’ problem.

Max Roach just north of Mingus demands a lot of strength to turn this obvious line of a sit start low-ball on positive and solid holds.

Much more remains to be developed in this area and boulders already sent will be updated in Jan-Feb.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at LMS and head down to the crag. Follow the wall to the south for 270 yds and pass a talus slope with vines. Continue and notice the rock size increasing and features showing up. Follow the animal trails to a cave overhang and a ramp that leads to Thelonious Monk in 5’ and then 10’ south of that rock you will see The Jazz Workshop founder, Charles Mingus.

A more direct approach is to park at LMS and walk downhill to where the next guardrail starts. Count 7 posts and jump the rail. There should be a drainage culvert there. Scramble downhill and you should end up in the viney talus slope or just south of it. Continue south a few minutes and you will find The Jazz Workshop.

On either approach if you look east to the lake you will see a cove with a sandbar extending from its northern shore. If that northern shore is south of you, you are north of Mingus. If it is north of you you are south of Mingus. If it is directly even with you and mount scott you’re right there.
