Description 

I'm hesitant to post this area, as I have enjoyed countless days of quality bouldering in peace and solitude. However, I no longer live in the area and don't want it to disappear once more into the tattered pages of bouldering history.

I'm not sure what was a FA and what was not, therefor all route descriptions are named by me with the exception of what info I could find. In my defense, I have bouldered here for years and have never encountered another soul.

Please drive slowly when passing houses! Respect the area and pack out any trash you bring... Its already dumpy enough.

I will continue updating throughout the holidays. Contact me for a proper tour.

"Travel south from New Jack on 247 until you can see the south side of the ridge. Follow good dirt roads to the obvious bulldozed gash in the middle of the ridge. At the base of this gash is a group of large steep boulders with excellent features and flat landings. About 40 problems total. When New Jack is cold the weather here is warm and sunny in the afternoon. The farthest boulder to the left has a juggy yet pumpy 100+ foot traverse around it. The Hanger 18 crew added the hardest problems to the area back in the day."
