Description 

This is a great boulder with a ton of routes. The front side has great rock and has lots of possibilities from long traverses to vertical and slab climbs. The backside is pretty tall and has lots of overhanging and vertical climbs. This is a pretty well-known boulder and probably has a number of different names, but I think Pumphouse Boulder is most common.

Getting There 

Park the first pulloff for the Black Wave area, and it's straight down the hill a little way and you can't miss it.

Climbing Season
