Do not park on road. MORE INFO >>>


This area has granite, freestanding boulders that are 15- 20 feet tall and well-featured with slopers, crimps and jugs. The boulders in this area contains many problems from V0 and up. This area is still undeveloped, for the most part, and has quite a bit of potential.

Getting There 

Park at scenic overlook two car parking and designated parking only. Continue down the road untill you reach a right hand pullout blocked by a gate reading; NO PARKING. Cross the road and continue under the the power line towards the magnificent "dome" until you reach a clear area holding three or four free standing boulders. This area is referred to as the chipped boulders area in a local guidebook because of the repulsive chipping of artificial holds and ignorant placement of numerous bolts. If you see this disgusting defacement, then you're in the right place.
