1) Crackhouse alley
2) Confederate Cracks
3) Walls of Moria
4) The Arcade
5) Street Fighter Wall
6) Ren and Stimpy
7) Prophecy Wall
8) Titanic Boulder

Getting There Suggest change

Can be approached from the south via the Idaho boulders trail (park at the outpost, hike the stairs south of the outpost, then continue south past the cabin on the trail. Trends uphill and eventually reaches the idaho boulders and a choice to go right or left depending on the crag) or the north via the north forty trail. there are several offshoot trails that get you to specific crags, so the routes you want to do will dictate the approach.
