Named after the late, great Eric Kiser, this boulder lies on the far east side of the Brickyard in a nice shady off the beaten path location. The trail is a little dense right now but I'll be spending some more time out there in the near future to make it a little easier to access.

Getting There 

From the Coffee Boulder keep walking towards the road (away from the Extremist boulder) following a faint trail that gets a little more obvious the further you go. When you hit the split in the trail after about 50 ft, take the right fork and continue for about another 200 ft or so, skirting close to the base of the cliffband on your right. After passing over a fallen tree and a small boulder, the Kiser boulder should be on your right within the next 100 ft or so.

There's a couple ways to go about it (some harder than others). Once you hit the dish blast up to the big (but slopey) rail where you can cop a handjam. At this point you probably want to center your chi for the couple moves to come because ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

If possible this area should be a part of Jah Hole but I can't figure out how to do so
