Large boulders populate this infrequently visited area. Some of the best bouldering and some short routes reside here.

The two main boulders are The Foxhole Boulder and The Mausoleum Boulder. There may be other climbs around so just have fun exploring.

Getting There 

This area is located down the hill from the Fear of Flying alcove.

Best Access
From the Loop Trail:
Travel east along the creek bed to a wash on the left (north).
Hike up the wash toward the large boulder in the trees.
Turn right (east) at the boulder and travel through the flat forested area along game trails.
Continue skirting the base of Buzzards Roost to an opening bound by bushes.
Turn left (north) through an opening in the bushes (or do a short bush whack).
Continue north and look for the large boulders on the right (west).

Other Access
From Fear of Flying Alcove:
1) Scramble directly down and look for the Mausoleum (not recommended with large pads or heavy pack).
2) Hike up toward Little Feat.
Either continue down then go right (east) or trend northeast past a large, mostly chossy, boulder field.
Continue until an easy path is located through the boulders then hike down (south).
Look for the large boulders on the right (west).

Pull some tough crimp moves to an obvious shelf. Mantle and finish up the technical face.There are some variations like dropping off from the ledge (V4) and starting from the ledge and finishing to the top (V2).
