Taquero Vaquero is a large, highly featured, rectangular boulder full of easy problems. Since it's located right near the parking area, it makes for a great warm-up boulder.

There is an easy downclimb on the boulder's northeast corner. In addition, the boulder apparently makes for a wonderful bottle breaker, most of the holds have been cleared, but there is still some glass remaining.

Getting There 

This is the first boulder from the parking area. It is maybe 20 yards off of the highway.
