The area south of the parking lot for Area 51.

Description 

This is the area of boulders across the street from the Grit Wall sport area. It's on the same side of the road as the parking area, and there's a good cluster of boulders just south of the parking area with plenty more for potential.

Getting There 

Like Grit Wall, take the 3rd right hand pullout after mile marker 148. The parking is perpendicular with the road and is more obvious than the other parking areas.

Climbing Season

For the Nine Mile Hill area.

Weather station 14.4 miles from here
