BETA PHOTO: Bonetop Boulder is on the right. It's easy to miss...


Bonetop is a large boulder. The north face is the most climbable, there may be potential on its other faces though. The rock quality is very good, and the landing is great, at least along its north face.

Getting There 

It is located in the Southie Area. From the parking area, head downhill, cross East Creek, head up toward the Mecca Boulder on the dirt track, continue past the boulder about 50 yards, and then head uphill toward the cliff. Below the cliff, there is a foot path, head in a southwesterly direction and the boulder will be on the left. It is best to just look at the page map, it's tough to explain, this one is pretty far out there. It lies about 25 yards northeast of Mistress.
