Description 

This is a small 10 ft high boulder. It’s in a nice setting too, in the forest right by a stream. The boulder has about 4 main lines, all V0-V1, but I’m sure you could do some V4-V5 with sit starts, skipping holds, traverses, etc. The down climb is an easy ledge to a tree wedged against the boulder on the backside.

Most of the holds are solid, some are grippy and others are smooth and polished. There is 1 jug that is a little loose so be gentle on it. Bring a brush too because this thing rarely gets climbed so it’s dirty and covered in spider webs.

Getting There 

From the parking lot walk a mile on the road and the asphalt turns to dirt and splits into a Y near some buildings. Stay to the left. Hike another 1/2 mile and cross over the second bridge and go down to the boulder about 10 feet on the left.

The adjacent stream bed is now flowing through the landing zone of half the boulder, and the approach is pretty overgrown with poison oak, probably best to avoid this area, though the hike in was nice.

wha?

all the problems are on the "dry" side of the boulder anyway, and I have NEVER encountered poison oak near the Bridge Boulder.

high water, though, may be an issue Feb thru April

The area around this boulder has really come in and the vegetation is very overgrown. A lot of deadfall all around the base of the boulder.

I was barely able to get to the boulder through the brush, and even then there wasn't a ton of space to set my crash pad down.

Kind of sad I wasn't able to climb this when it was prime!

Theres these things called loppers that you can use to cut back pants. They work a lot better than crying about things online. Get out and take care of your local spots and give back to the areas that give you so much.

^^^+1^^^ in support of Tristan B's advice regarding being a good steward for our unique play areas.

Just an observation, but loppers are typically used to cut and/or prune PLANTS.
When trimming PANTS scissors produce a more precise cut. It's debatable whether loppers will even cut pants.
