The shortest approach for good bouldering in the entire Refuge. There are already a few good problems over here, and there is potential for several more to go up. The rock quality is superb, mostly bullet proof, but it can be very sharp.

Getting There 

Follow the main road through the Refuge until you pass the left-hand turn for Camp Doris. Take the next left hand turn towards the Boulder Picnic Area. Park at the first right side pull off before the white gate. Grab your pads and gear and continue up the road for 2-3 minutes. You'll see the Darkstar boulder to your left first and if you continue walking another minute or two, you'll see the Stack Boulder to your left.
