Reaching up to the sloper on Tidal Wave


Towards the north end of the area this area is worth the walk from the parking area, as it has some of the best problems around. The Jalapeño Boulder is easily recognized by the obvious cracks on its north face. The orange face east face of The Blue Moon Boulder is another easy to spot landmark.

The problems range from short and powerful to tall and cerebral and almost all are worth doing.

Getting There 

From the parking area head generally north west. After about 5 minutes look for a large dead tree on top of some rocks. These rocks are The Jalapeño Boulder.
