Description 

A great bouldering area that's close by if your staying in Camp Curry that doesn't get much attention but still has some great problems. The main area is farther west of most of the tent cabins but there is a nice boulder by cabin #321 with two problems that deserve some attention.

Getting There 

Walk west from the main concentration of tent cabins, cross a ditch and the boulders lie near a power cord. The other boulder is right next to cabin #321.

Circuit Breaker, 11b fingers

Circuit Breaker 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c V2 5+  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : Circuit Breaker
This is one of the classic crack boulder problems in the Valley. Approximately 20' tall with a short approach, flat landing, and easy walk off, this slightly leaning splitter finger crack is great for honing your thin fingercrack technique. Mostly first knuckle locks. Usually bouldered, but you could rig a TR if desired."Climb the beautiful splitter finger crack that angles up and left. First 5 feet are the hardest by far." - ShaunG...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Short approach and approximately 55 established problems. This area gets a bit of shade so is one of the cooler places to climb.
