BETA PHOTO: Unknown climb. I think it's this area. Taken in 20...
These boulders are in a nice little alcove towards the bottom of the West Bluff Talus fields. Everything is in a pretty concentrated area and the landings are generally good.
Park by the South Shore boat launch and walk down the dirt road by the cottages. Walk for 5-10 minutes until the first really big talus field opens up on your left. Walk up into the field towards a line of trees on the left side. As you get closer you'll start to see the boulders.
Mountain Project's determination of some of the classic, most popular, highest rated routes for Hogleg/Anchorpoint boulders:
If you think you are a hardman, go to hogleg, go in the nearby cave, and climb the V1 crack out of the cave - incredible! Would be great if someone could flatten out the cave floor with rocks - many gems await inside!
This is a great little area to go and session. Problems for all abilities and close enough to Alpine Club and Beautiful Soup for some harder climbing. Swimming in the lake near by is an added bonus as well. Go get it!

The talus field is the one where somebody spraypainted a yellow dot on a boulder halfway up. If you get to the "John F. McArthur" parkbench you have gone too far.
And when you are done climbing there are plenty of wild raspberries all over including right at the topout of Anchorpoint. Thanks Steve!
"Trust Fund Slab" is directly below "Sun Top Tower" of the Prospect Point Towers. There is also some more bouldering as you traverse north. The "Dumpster Boulder", "Peace Boulder" and "Super Slab" can be found from here.
The boulders that the Dutchess, Duke, Loompa Land, Empty Space, Sharks Fin/Eagle Eye, and Snaggletooth are on are within eyeshot of the Half Dome boulder. There appear to be some good looking lines that have yet to make their mountainproject debute up there.
