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.
This is a tall problem with balance moves on a good edges. You'll find this problem on the tallest part of the left most side of the boulder. Start on opposing side pulls at chest height. The crux is grabbing a thin vertical black seam a short ways off the ground. Move up on thin edges before parallel side pulls on black rock will see you to the top. Descend climbers left.
This beautiful boulder is found along the north side of the Cataract Lake/Mason Lake access road on National Forest land. It's one of the biggest boulders on the hillside and only a 5-minute walk up from the dirt road.
