This is a nice low elevation bouldering area in a beautiful little canyon. There are a handful of really nice boulders to be climbed on, with some great moderate problems and some really good harder ones. The rock is a bit water polished, but has really nice features and is mostly super solid. The landings of some of the climbs are occasionally under standing water.

Getting There 

These boulders are directly below It Cliff. Park at the Molino Basin parking area, a mile or so before the Fee Station. Follow the trail south for a bit, scramble down into the creekbed and head downstream.

Climbing Season

For the 1 - Lower Highway area.

This is a nice little bouldering area, whether you are looking for some fun, easy problems or some mutant-hard projects. The setting is hard to beat, as well.

I know people have been climbing here for a while, but with a paucity of information regarding climbs in this area, we have been adding problems with names we have given them. If you have climbed these problems before and had a name for them, let me know and we'll revert to the original name.
