With more than 30 problems, there is a whole day's worth of bouldering in the Boxcar area. No matter what your level there is a great climb or two to test your ability: Blasted Rock (V1), Drifter's Escape (V2), Baby Hole (V3), The Boxcar Boulder Problem (V4), Boxcar Arete (V8), Fly Like an Ego (V9), Little Death (V10).
The Boxcar boulder is easily spotted as you walk down the Undercliff Road. From the Trapps bridge, walk north on the Undercliff road for 20 or 25 minutes. When you are getting close, you will pass the Andrew boulder which overhangs the carriage road and the large Nameless boulder a hundred yards or so before the Boxcar.
