  • Description 

    One of the best bouldering areas in the Icicle, with a good number of developed problems at all grades. Everthing from burly low starts to super sketchy highballs, with landings ranging from great to deadly. High quality featured granite boulders abound, and there are plenty of outliers for when the main areas are crowded.

    Getting There 

    Drive 5.7 miles up Icicle Road past. You will pass Barney's Rubble, an obvious cragging area just off the road on your right. Take the first right after Barney's up a dirt road and park at the end. Hike the obvious trail into the forest, crossing a stream. In 3 minutes you'll come to a clearing and the start of the boulders.
