  • Description 

    Excellent granite bouldering that, despite having a decent amount of development, has vast potential for the developer. Just go forth, find a boulder, scrub some holds and get an FA...extensive hiking may be required, depending on motivation, but the rewards are limitless.

    Getting There 

    Follow directions for Hatcher Pass, but do not turn on the Archangel Road, "Continue up Fish hook road past Archangel Road for a few miles, and you will encounter a low parking lot, with two bathrooms and a park pay site. If the gate is open for the mine, continue up and park at the upper lot. If the gate is closed, park at the lower lot. From the upper lot, follow the paved zigzagging trail up the hill, passing through the mine ruins. Continue on a dirt trail over a little bridge. Continue on this trail for a few hundred yards and then break off left and toward the creek, where large boulders are visible. The first set of chalked boulders are the Captain Kaboom Boulders. Continue up past the Captain Kaboom boulders another few hundred yards to the Phantasia boulders. The boulders are just west of the creek, approximately 150 yards from the A-Frame, and perpendicular to it as well. Continue past this boulder for another 100 yards, going slightly northeast. The Black Face is distinct on the lower right side when approaching.
