These are the boulders near Sawmill Road/Pie Shop parking on the north side of the road. Many problems have been done.

I have added the areas based on the making convention in the Super Topo guide. I think Tomato boulder that Blitzo added is Boulder B but not exactly sure.

Boulders are named A through N starting with A close to the road.

Getting There 

Drive up Sawmill from Hwy. 50 until just before the first houses on the right. Park on the South side of the road. Do not disturb the residents.

Climbing Season

For the The Pie Shop area.

Weather station 1.8 miles from here
