This is a small 10 ft high boulder. Itís in a nice setting too, in the forest right by a stream. The boulder has about 4 main lines, all V0-V1, but Iím sure you could do some V4-V5 with sit starts, skipping holds, traverses, etc. The down climb is an easy ledge to a tree wedged against the boulder on the backside.

Most of the holds are solid, some are grippy and others are smooth and polished. There is 1 jug that is a little loose so be gentle on it. Bring a brush too because this thing rarely gets climbed so itís dirty and covered in spider webs.

Getting There 

From the parking lot walk a mile on the road and the asphalt turns to dirt and splits into a Y near some buildings. Stay to the left. Hike another 1/2 mile and cross over the second bridge and go down to the boulder about 10 feet on the left.

The adjacent stream bed is now flowing through the landing zone of half the boulder, and the approach is pretty overgrown with poison oak, probably best to avoid this area, though the hike in was nice.

all the problems are on the "dry" side of the boulder anyway, and I have NEVER encountered poison oak near the Bridge Boulder.

high water, though, may be an issue Feb thru April
