Description 

The Backyard Boulders are a cluster of awesome boulders ranging from 8 foot one move wonders to 25 foot highballs. This small cluster is one of the best Wolf Creek sections.

Getting There 

Drive down Wolf Creek Road (the dirt road), you'll pass the first right hand turn with a big sign for a camp. At the second chance to turn right onto another road do it. Follow this road until it forks, park on the grass to the right and walk straight into the woods from there, you can see specs of the boulders from the parking, head in the right direction and you'll eventually hit the piles, theres the first one you come to with a few boulders all really good, the left pile is not worth it, and the pile behind the first one is the tall Action Jackson boulder.

Action Deluxe V7 7A+  Arizona : Central Arizona : ... : Action Jackson Boulder
Action Deluxe is the right sit start into Action Jackson. Theres many ways to start this, but the simplest is to use the right hand sloper just below the thin crack crimps, and left hand on a small sidepull. Pull up and drop knee into the left hand undercling, fall into the right crimp and jump to the jug start of Action Jackson.If you have the old Bill Cramer book this is listed as a V?...Pretty sure it has been done before me, so if anyone has any info feel free to share it....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
