This is a good, steep block located in a neighborhood.

Follow cliff band uphill and then bear left for a few minutes. You will begin to see boulders. Keep going for another 4-5 minutes until you see the green water tank.

I'm confused...if there is an access issue, why keep posting problems...if there isn't an access issue, why no directions??

NickV, Welcome to Lynn Woods! There have been a few waves of development in Lynn Woods. The access issue is only with the Boxcar Boulder proper. It is near a homeowners yard. It should be noted that the Boxcar Boulder itself is in Lynn Woods. The Golden Wall, and likely some of these others are also in Lynn Woods, they may be near a home though. Another thing to keep in mind is that directions are tough here. We're currently expanding/improving on the bouldering map, so stay tuned for that. It will coincide with Mountain Project.
