This is such a great location to start the day with! Boasting an easy approach and many amazing boulder problems, you shouldn't miss out on climbing at the Pavilion!

Once parked, hike behind the pavilion/shelter to the obvious rocks. The first cluster has a few good ones, and further above (above "Trinity") is another line of great problems.

Getting There
