Bull Rock has newer bolted lines on it, as well as a crack climb. The bolted lines here tend to be steep and juggy.
Bull Rock is one of the few rocks in South Seas located between the old dirt road and the highway. The easiest approach is to park at the main parking lot, and start walking on the old road. Take the first right turn trail which leads to the rock after only a few feet.

There are 3 new routes on this rock, all near each other facing the old road through South Seas. Does anybody know the route names or ratings for these climbs? I found them all to be really good additions to South Seas. The bolt placements were smart and the climbing enjoyable.

Is this rock part of Squirrel Alley? If not, can I get some more descriptive directions?
