Description 

Large varnished sandstone boulders exist on either side of the pass. The rock is of a pretty high quality and problems range from compressiony low-balls all the way to highball inverted offwidths. While certainly not a destination crag, the rock here is surprisingly good, and definitely worth a pit stop if you're driving the road.

Mostly unestablished, but a few lines exist.
Information forthcoming as development ensues.

Getting There 

From Flagstaff take Highway 89 North past bitter springs, and begin up Antelope Pass towards Page. From Page, drive 20 miles South on 89 through Antelope Pass. Park anywhere close to the boulders of your choice, however the best parking is in a large dirt lot on the western (down hill) side of the road.

For the most part approaches should not take more than 10 minutes. This stuff is very roadside.

All my geotags should be accurate, and your cellphone's GPS should work even when you don't have cell service.

Chalk Chakra V3 6A  Arizona : Northern Arizona : ... : Alignment Boulder
On the East side of the Alignment Boulder, locate a juggy scoop and a small pocket high above it. Pull onto the scoop and use high feet with strange body tension to reach the holds above. I recommend inspecting the top out from above, as it is very sloping and the holds are illusive, but all there....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona

This spot was all the rage circa Y2K. I never made the stop, but had heard good things. Colin Cox probably knows what history there is to know.

I think that this place makes for a nice pit stop if you're into bouldering. If Collin is on MP have him post up the stuff he knows about!
