VERY isolated. When other areas of the canyon are crowded, head here. Several great problems rating from V0 to V9.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking lot to the bike path and follow it across the river. Right after crossing the river, take the climber trail to the right and follow it for about 10 minutes.

Shouldn't this be part of the Far Side area, not the Riverside?

I was under the impression the riverside area included boulders like the buzz, alzheimers, and far side.
At least this is what the "Utah Bouldering" guide states.

You can pretty much throw a rock over to the Far Side boulder from Shivers anyways...

Anyways, if you really care that Far Side is considered its own area, you can click on "Improve this page" and your request gets submitted to the admins

Nope, you are wrong again Emerson. Three separate areas actually. That's how it went down during the original development, as well. Sure, the Farside is easily accessible when the water is low, but this is not the case other times of the year.

Do we need to get you a copy of the Black Bible? Local folks put a lot of time and effort into documenting this stuff. The least you could do is start from the appropriate reference.

For the amount of bouldering and Mountain Projecting you do, it would be a favor to us and yourself to post correct information. Utah Bouldering is not a recognized source and has never been.

Many of the FA's, their friends, and counterparts had a large hand in creating The Utah Guide to Bouldering. Its pages are direct from the horses mouth. If you act fast, there is currently a brand-new one at IME.

Yikes guys, sorry I didn't get a copy of the "black bible". Pretty sure it was out of print by the time I got here

Not sure how to change the area though, so I'll let an admin take care of it.

user id- serious about the book being at IME? I have been looking for a decently priced copy for the past 4 years...
