Description 

A collection of boulders that house some of the best climbs in Black Mountain. Temperature wise, perhaps one of the cooler areas as this spot provides shade for most of the problems on breezeless days.

The Black Mountain testpiece Bang On can be found here. Other notable climbs are Rounded Boulders Arete and Adamantium.


Getting There 

Walk up the dirt road from Boulder Basin towards the fire lookout. The road can be found at the entrance to the campgrounds. At the first extreme switchback, go off the road to the left and follow a trail left and slightly downhill to the boulders. You know you're on the right trail when you pass a fallen tree that crosses the trail after about 10 seconds.

The trail to the boulders is quite obvious, but just in case you're not sure look right to the first HUGE boulder off the trail where you'll see a bolted route (5.11+) with a bail sling.
