BETA PHOTO: A rough overview of the boulders at Breakneck.

Private Land MORE INFO >>>


Although Breakneck is widely known for it's sport climbing, it is also home to some of SWPA's hardest and best boulder problems. Located on the cluster of boulders just below the cliffline, you will find something worth doing in every grade range.

People have been bouldering here for a long time, at least since it's been a sport climbing destination. In my attempt to collect all the correct information from over the years, please forgive my inaccuracies and oversights. Most of my information comes from Andrew Garman during his time spent here around 2005. If you know something I don't, please let me know!

Getting There 

Follow normal directions, boulders are just below cliffline.
