Fotowa Boulder Rock Climbing
This is a tall, flat-faced boulder with a large gap running through the middle, splitting it into two, with a small wedge in the gap. The rock is gneiss with beautiful texture and tiny crimps.
From the Crystal Methods Boulder (facing the main face), follow a well worn hiking path heading left and up the hill. Soon it will turn into a talus scramble, but keep following the general path of wear. After a short scramble, you should see the Fotowa Boulder, which is one of the largest in immediate sight, characterized by its very flat face.
