This 10 foot high boulder is the most accessable of all the rocks on the Canyon Trail, sitting just off the Canyon Trail. As with all the Canyon Trail boulders, this is in the shade all the time, and is an excellently cool place to spend a hot summer afternoon.

The Rock is mostly solid volcanic tuff, and all routes face away from the Canyon Trail, which you jump back onto on the descent off the backside of the boulder.

All climbs sit on the face away from the road, and climbing is excellent warmups in the V1 to V3 range.

A fun V2 campus problem starts on the leftside sloper with both hands matched and moves up three consecutive bulges. There's also a short traverse that moves low from the right and moves left up into the slot.

Getting There 

Approach time from the car: 3 minutes.

To get to this boulder, drive 3.3 miles up Adobe Canyon Road from highway 12 into the Sugarloaf Ridge State Park to a 8-12 car pullout on your left. Park.

Cross the street and head downhill on the Canyon Trail, which will have a small 3' high sign pointing you in the right direction.

Walk downhill on the windy and gently steep trail to the first distinct boulder which grows from nothing into a decently sized boulder on your left, which is the Canyon Trail Boulder. Climbing is on the other side, and is just barely viewable from the trail a little further down the trail.
