Skyline Boulder Rock Climbing
This Boulder is the second largest boulder in the mail, front lineup of impressive looking boulders you can see from the top of the first hill from the road.
This boulder is to the left of the boulder beside of Horizon Boulder that has a large oblonged block hanging precariously off of its top.
The Skyline Boulder is large and mostly blank. At the moment, its left-side arête is its only boulder problem. Easy going one move wonders have not been, and likely will not be listed as well as top out problems.
-Sit start on the far left side of the face at the low, bottom portion of the blunt arête. Stay oriented on the front face (trending left to start slab climbing is not the problem).
Work up from the bottom jug and pinch the hard to handle block pinch loaf in the center of the arête (harder if you are short).
Match the hard pinch and situate feet below.
Toss to better territory overhead at the top of the arête. Top out and scramble up to the top of the boulder.
Down-climb the left side slab or take the scenic route around the backside.
Take the trail around that links to Cluster 1 and scramble over blocks and talus and around tones of blueberry bushes to get to the boulders.
