These boulders are in a nice little alcove towards the bottom of the West Bluff Talus fields. Everything is in a pretty concentrated area and the landings are generally good.

Getting There 

Park by the South Shore boat launch and walk down the dirt road by the cottages. Walk for 5-10 minutes until the first really big talus field opens up on your left. Walk up into the field towards a line of trees on the left side. As you get closer you'll start to see the boulders.

All of this is just from memory right now. I'll try to grab some pictures soon and add in any other problems I might have missed.

This is the big talus field AFTER beautiful soup. Keep walking and just wait for the first really big one!

If you think you are a hardman, go to hogleg, go in the nearby cave, and climb the V1 crack out of the cave - incredible! Would be great if someone could flatten out the cave floor with rocks - many gems await inside!

Hey Paul, where is the cave in relation?

This is a great little area to go and session. Problems for all abilities and close enough to Alpine Club and Beautiful Soup for some harder climbing. Swimming in the lake near by is an added bonus as well. Go get it!

The talus field is the one where somebody spraypainted a yellow dot on a boulder halfway up. If you get to the "John F. McArthur" parkbench you have gone too far.

And when you are done climbing there are plenty of wild raspberries all over including right at the topout of Anchorpoint. Thanks Steve!

Does anyone remember the great roof problem to a long slab that was around this problem? We had looked at it the day I took the pics of Anchorpoint. This boulder roof is still a project I believe.

"Trust Fund Slab" is directly below "Sun Top Tower" of the Prospect Point Towers. There is also some more bouldering as you traverse north. The "Dumpster Boulder", "Peace Boulder" and "Super Slab" can be found from here.

Yeah nick I remember that Roof. I never went back and did it and I cant remember where it is...Ha. We will all have to go looking. I think it would be a good problem.

Oh man, we will NEVER find that thing! Damn, I can even visualize it in my mind, so cool it was. Maybe I'll take another journey into the deep recess of the west bluff talus.

Was the yellow marker on that boulder in the talus a casualty of this weekend's graffiti cleanup??

You betcha. Another piece of graffiti on the same piece of rock was also removed.

The boulders that the Dutchess, Duke, Loompa Land, Empty Space, Sharks Fin/Eagle Eye, and Snaggletooth are on are within eyeshot of the Half Dome boulder. There appear to be some good looking lines that have yet to make their mountainproject debute up there.

Totally agree Jay. It's a cool little area and a fair amount of good concentration.
