Access Issue: Private Property in the area Details
To access the Mason lake and the surrounding boulders you must first drive in on the Cataract Lake road which is public access through private land. Please don't climb any rock until reaching the BLM public lands sign. The sign is located at a cattle guard and an enormous boulder beside the road. All rock beyond this point is on public lands and is fair game.
A really nice and clean vertical face with fun movements. The problem follows a zig zag of slanting finger seams to a jug and a nice top out. Start low right and work the thin finger seam up and left to a hole. From there find the small side pull that will help you reach the jug and finish with an easy top out. Walk off to the right.
This boulder is found at the edge of Mason Lake proper. Take the 1.3 mile trail to the lake. Take the obvious left hand path along the edge of the lake 30 yards to a steam crossing. The boulder is on the other side of the stream just beyond a few trees and smaller boulders. Look for the old piece of rusted metal lying near the base of the boulder.
