The directions are not only vague, but wrong. Here are some more detailed directions:

-Take I-94 to Eau Claire
-Exit onto 53N
-Take a Right onto North Crossing/HWY 312
-North Crossing/Hwy 312 turns into Co Hwy Q/Olson Dr.
-Take a Right onto Co Hwy UN and follow the signs to the Big Falls Co -Park, and park in the lot
-Follow the trail (I believe there were two but both led to the boulders) which takes you to the river, the boulders are along the river

Note: there was a $3 daily parking fee

thank you for the update. Do you climb out there?

I just went out there for the first time last Sunday. I was impressed with the rock quality; I'm too use to running into the Eau Claire sandstone around here, which is dirt. I'm guessing you haven't come across any other boulders there aside from the one's directly in that area? Also I was wondering how you would compare Jim Falls to Big Falls, another place I have yet to check out?

Yes, unfortunately those are the only boulders at big falls. There are still some open projects down there. Did you think that the grade on snuckles was correct? I have been trying to develop some harder problems in the area. I would say Jim Falls is much much better. Just because there are many more boulders. Anytime you would like to go out and boulder just send me a message, I am out at big falls maybe 2-3 times a week.

I am not sure if I did Snuckles right, but here was my sequence. I started just to the left of the crack and went straight up the middle. I believe I did a stand start, as there were few feet if any for a sit. I then went straight up the middle, without the crack, and topped out using the ramp and a few small face crimps. If this is the right sequence I thought that was around a V1 or V2. I could very well be wrong though.

No, it is actually starts off on the lower half of the big ramp and follow the ramp up from left to right using nothing above the ramp. once you reach the point at the top of the ramp make big move to the ledge. I know the problem you are talking about and that is in the v1 range possibly a v2. When are you going down there again?
