Cave Area Boulder Rock Climbing
Despite being right off the trail, this overlooked boulder didn't make it into the new Obed guidebook. The rock is great, the landing is perfect, and the caliber of problems is as good or better than what you find elsewhere at the Lilly Boulders.
This boulder fell off the roof of The Cave Area in the new Obed guidebook. This is area #21 in the bouldering section.
Walk less than 10 minutes into the Forest. When you reach the third major cliff-line cave, you will see the boulder. The problems are on the downhill side.
