Idyllwild County Park Rock Climbing
Bouldering at the County Park, Idyllwild
Idyllwild County Park is situated in the town of Idyllwild and plays host to a number of granite boulders scattered around the campground. With the climbing situated nearby you'll often find yourself the only climbers here. In winter when all but 6 camping spots are closed the area can be very tranquil.
It is part of Riverside County Parks and therefore has rules and regulations like the other parks. It also has an entrance fee ($2 per adult, $1 per dog). Idyllwild Park

One of the nicer problems in the area, this problem was discovered underneath a thick layer of moss. The holds are brushed and the problem is good to go. Step off the rock onto the good rail for the foot. Right hand on a good edge up high and left hand on a low sidepull. Bring left hand up to a sloper with a thumb catch, adjust the feet and throw for the sloper with a divot at the lip of the boulder. Continue up on more slopers....[more] Browse More Classics in California

Just an FYI to everyone... I recently moved to Idyllwild and plan to add more content to this area since I live down the street. There seems to be very little information in the guidebook world (1 page in Craig Fry's guide) so I think it will benefit the community to flesh this place out a bit. If anything that I add seems wrong/inaccurate or improperly named, or poor quality, please let me know and I'll be glad to change/improve anything. In the interest of making the park easy to navigate, I will provide tentative names to the boulders but if there are existing names, please let me know and I'll modify my postings. Also, please let me know if there are any other resources I could access for more existing info. Thanks!

The Fry Guide has most of this stuff. If it's not named in the Fry Guide, and it's not a FA, definitely don't try to give it a name. Retro-naming is lame!
