This area is downriver from the shut-ins and contains hundreds of possible FA's that just need cleaned up and climbed. If you want to avoid the people coming to swim in the summer then this is the best place to do it. Some of the boulders can be a bit difficult to find, so be prepared to bush whack back to the rocks.

Getting There 

From the shut-ins, continue along the loop trail until it splits. The right trail will take you on top of the hill and past several boulders before returning to the beginning of the trail. The left branch follows the river to some of the densest bouldering in Amidon. There are lots of boulders on the far side of the river as well but will require you find a safe place to cross.
