The Amphitheater Boulders hold a high concentration of quality boulder problems and are some of the cleaner problems in the park thanks to the roofs protection.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail to the Gill Roof until you reach the cliff line. At the cliff line take a right and follow the trail up and then down to descend into the natural amphitheater roof. Continue towards the boulder field that has fallen from the roof above and locate the larger boulders towards the end. These are the main boulders.
