Access Issue: Access Notes Details
CRAGS, the local Access Fund org, continues to work with the City of Rocklin, and its Parks and Recreation Department, to improve the conditions of this bouldering site. Because of the setting, litter is a problem in this area. Please do your part. With a number of clean-ups and a recent face lift to the park, it is one of the easiest bouldering locations to get to in the Sacramento valley. With a longer term goal of (literally!) draining the swamp, and holding many future local events, Rocklin Bouldering is one of first and longest ongoing projects. Note that the former quarries east of Pacific Street, and opposite Deer Creek Park, are closed to climbing. You can communicate access issues directly at CRAGS’ Deer Creek Park page norcalcrags.org/crags/rockl….
This is a no hands traverse, so a true send is constituted by not touching the rock with your hands at all! Knees are fine on this though. The traverse goes from left to right and is started by stepping from the "starting block" at the far left onto the low edges of the wall, avoiding the large feet. Follow small edges along the wall before "topping out" at the far right side before the tree. You can make the traverse as short as you like, but the longer you wait to top out, the harder it gets. This is a great problem for practicing footwork, as you need to be very precise to avoid falling off.
Right behind you if you're looking at Desperado and Crack Face, just to the right of Nemesis.
