Ripple Rock provides a plethora of bouldering options on its featured, north-facing overhang. In addition, the rock quality is solid, and the landings are quite good.

Getting There 

From the Mecca Area pullout, follow the trail downhill and across East Creek. At this point, follow the dirt track north a hundred yards and head back downhill to East Creek. Ripple Rock lies 20 yards uphill from the Grey Eagle Boulder.
