BETA PHOTO: Pillbox Boulder's west face.


Pillbox is big, solid, and has very good landings. The west face of the boulder is featured, slightly overhanging, and boasts impressive potential for boulder problems.

Getting There 

This boulder lies on the far south side of the Other Side of the Mecca Area. Parking can be found in between the Mecca parking area and the road that accesses the top of the canyon above the Other Side. Park at the dirt pullout at the base of a large draw. From there, head uphill and you'll run into the boulder in less than five minutes.
