Mitch with undoubtedly the first crash pad and boo...


Secluded granite bouldering. This has the highest concentration of boulders and established problems. Several good top ropes exist here as well. Season is spring through fall.

Getting There 

Take the trail across from campsite 5 from the Horse Flats campground. Follow it and pass Romeo Void on your left. The trail will eventually lead you straight into a fabulous bouldering area. Probably a 5-15 minute brisk hike.

Start on low rail, heel hook, throw big out to the right and catch the crimp. Hit the side pull and top-out. Very short -- only 2-3 moves, but quite difficult to string together....[more]   Browse More Classics in California

The reference boulder for this area could be the flaky boulder, east of the trail just past the clearing - it's home to the classic "B1 Traverse".
