Located down and to the right of the main Dutzi Rock routes is this 30 foot boulder with some fun little routes. Three out of the five routes had better than average rock and it was way bearable on a cold windy day in Febuary.

Getting There 

Dutzi Rock lies about 350 yards north of Dinosaur Rock.This boulder is down and right and easy to see on the approach. Has four distinct cracks.

Saw a photo (on SuperTopo) of this same crag taken by Mark Chapman back in 1974. Kevin Worral and Billy Birdwell with rope at the base. I would hazard to guess all the routes date from then.

wish these routes were longer

Climbed 4 of the 5 routes on this boulder with 10b4me this past weekend, and I too wish they were longer. Overall a good area, fun for small groups who can work the problems as top ropes. Back side of formation is surrreal and may hold a small number of possibilities if the rock holds.

I climbed all of the 5 established routes with my friends Lisa and Joan yesterday. We also top roped the west face and two of the cracks on the back. Pretty fun, but the cracks need to clean up. I'll let Joan decide on the ratings since she was the first one on these three climbs.
