Upper San Juan Boulders Rock Climbing
Abner cranking the big move to the lip!
Great condensed area with lots of possibility. I have only been here twice, found some fun problems and wanted to post to gain interest.
Park in the large parking lot across the street from the candy store. Adventure pass required. Enter the south west side of the San Juan Loop trail. Follow the trail into the campground. From here walk left towards the highway until you see the large drain pipe, I recommend crossing through here rather than the highway. Once through the pipe the bouldering starts and continues up the creek.
Climbing Season For the Santa Ana Mountains area.
Weather station 6.0 miles from here

Start on a great incut crimp for the right hand, and left hand on a sidepull, pull onto glassy feet and climb the tall overhanging arete with polished crimps down low, grab the arete and rock onto the slab, making delicate moves high off the deck.The landing for this boulder isnt the best. Theres a large ledge that you can fill with pads under the face, but after rocking around the arete and committing to the slab, you are exposed over a large rocky pit.Id highly recommend checking out the slab...[more] Browse More Classics in California

I hiked up this drainage a couple months ago to see if there was anything, I remember alot of the rock being very water polished and the only thing I took a liking to was the large overhanging arete that sits at the base of the drainage. Its hard to tell if it had been climbed or not, there are some great polished crimps at the base, and it looked as if some of the loose flakes had been broken off. I have yet to get back out there and try it. The bolt thats on the the flat slab is very interesting and couldnt figure out why it was placed there.
