The Bighorn Pass Boulders are scattered around a rock formation just south of Queen Mountain. The majority of the boulders, including Fade, Little Biglip and Mount Butterhorn are located on the right (east) side of the formation. The Bighorn Boulder is the first one encountered when arriving at the formation (south), and the Dune boulder is the lone climbable boulder around the left side (northwest).

Getting There 

Take the dirt road leading from the Barker Dam parking lot (aka Bighorn Pass Road). At approximately 1 mile, stay left at the fork. Park at a dirt pullout on the left several hundred yards further. Walk towards the formation of dark boulders a few hundred yards north.
