Upside Boulder? Photo by Blitzo.


This is a large secluded boulder uphill from the Saigon boulder. The rock is a nice gray granite with some good crimps and slopers. Some of the holds are still a bit crusty but the rock is great! There are at least 3 really good problems on this rock.

Getting There 

Walk uphill 5 minutes from the Saigon Boulder.

Start sitting in the small alcove in the middle of the West face with a nice horizontal pinch for both hands. Climb up and right past underclings, then up the face using small crimps and maybe a sidepull. Top out (crux) with a long move to a couple of bulges. Awesome!!!!This only got 2 stars in the guidebook...sad....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
