Anyone have any information about the boulders in the Giant Rock area? Or know if any of the problems there have been documented? There are a few bolted routes on the MP page but that is all I have found so far.

Craig Fry's southern Calif. bouldering guide has two pages on bouldering at Giant Rock( pp. 120-121). Best of mOther Rock Vol one (P.30-31) contains two pages of info on DMZ sport climbs (AKA Shady Grove) at Giant Rock. And there is an underground guide of some more sport climbs (Tyler) up on the hillside on the large boulders above Giant Rock (I have a copy somewhere...so does Chris Miller, I believe)....the info is out there...but sort of hard to find....

Thanks Todd. I will look into these. If you come across your copy of the underground guide maybe I could convince you to make some photo copies of it? I would pay for it of course. I am interested in developing (and cleaning up) this area a little more and I would like to find out what has been done so far.

Keep us updated. I've been there a few times on my drives to/fro Josh. Had a few holds break on me, but there are some decent lines there for sure.

It definitely needs some TLC but I think it has some potential.
