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.

In the center of the boulder a long crimper rail leads up and right. Start matched on the rail and climb up, trying your best not to break the wafer (you'll know it when you grab it). Technical and strenuous.
Head about 200 feet uphill from Stinkin' Slopers, trending slightly west. Balance of Power sits in a sunny talus field just uphill from a large overhanging wall.
