The Boxcar Woody boulders are the most easily accessible boulders at the Nut Tree Boulders. With an approach that takes literally 15 seconds, this is a great spot for a hit and go burn or a late in the evening session. There's even a great traverse under the glare of a street light on the Spotlight Boulder allowing for an after hours pull down session should you be so inclined.

The Boxcar boulder is a short boulder (10ft at it's highest) but makes up for it's height in length and hosts one of the longest (about 80ft) and best traverses at the Nut Tree Boulders. The steeper side of the boulders hosts a large number of potential eliminates and classic problems while the longer (less steep) side of the boulders offer great, long traverse problems with a grade range that offers something for just about everyone but the most burly of boulderers.
