The left Obvious Line on the Flux Boulder. Start standing on the big right facing sidepull feature and climb up the technical face with cool holds to a slightly insecure topout. In the shade most the day since a large pine tree is over the boulder.


Hike up the CCC trail and once you hit the the first cliff band head left into the talus just before doing the final steeper stairs up to the flatiron and it is in the talus on the left edge just below the Pedestal problem and underneath the big pine tree. There are a couple other really fun lines on this face to that are a little easier.


Couple pads. Good Landing

Great Problem! I think EB had the FA. EB was did you call this problem? I've forgotten all the names for the problems on this boulder.

This was named the flux boulder by Eric Z. Some good stories surround this boulder which are probably best left out of the digital realm! great work on all the documenting and developing. I would love a tour of all the new stuff next spring!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the main photo on this page of "Sticky Arete"? It even says 'flux boulder, right corner' in the caption.

Anyone have GPS on this one? I had a hard time finding it last weekend.

The directions are a bit confusing because it says to go left before the final stairs up to the flatiron. That isn't necessarily wrong, but what it really means is to go straight down hill (south) from the trail where there's that small stone wall cemented onto a boulder to kind of mark the turn uphill.

You can also find the problem called ObZen that's right off the trail and walk into the talus just past that, slightly past a large pine tree. It's maybe 50-100 feet into the talus and slightly downhill from that position. The boulder itself faces downhill and it's in a cluster of fairly large boulders. Hope that helps.

There's a fairly obvious large pine tree on the downhill side of this boulder. The problem "The Pedestal" is ( is about 1/2 of the way to flux boulder from where steve and tony suggested cutting down.

The GPS coordinates at the spot where you walk due west from the CCC trail to this boulder are: 43*24'46"N and 89*42'40"W. I'll post a photo of the spot where you walk directly west towards a very tall pine tree. Boulder is under this tree. It's maybe 100 yards directly west of the CCC trail from this spot.

This was the easiest approach IMO, but as the comments above point out, you can approach from any direction.

God I hope this photo is a macro of the exact spot on the trail from which you step into the talus....
