Access Issue: Working Timberland Details
April 19, 2017: Weekday access to the Gold Bar boulders has now reopened following a temporary closure to ensure public safety during harvest activities associated with the Dyno timber sale. In partnership with Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition, DNR preserved access to much of the road network hikers and climbers use to access the Gold Bar boulders.

Fun arete, sit start on obvious low block move up to crimps and side pulls then either go left or right around the arete (both are about the same difficulty) and grab the point (it's a jug) and turn the top.
Upper west parking area, the last pullout on the corner before you reach the end of the road. This problem is on the back side of the huge boulder sitting right in front of your car if you parked in the right place. Follow the trail into the woods and look right as you reach the back of the huge boulder.
one pad will do, good problem if you're alone, no spotters needed.
