This upper boulder is located a 5-to-10-minute hike from the road and is at the base of the cliffs on the ridge above the road. From the lower boulders, this looks like a flat rock with no height to it at all. It is obscured by vegetation on all sides, and the A frame is around the back, but is easy to identify as you hike around the right side of the larger boulder. The A frame houses the best problem at Silverbell, The Rails (V6), as well as the drilled-pocket problems (V4-5).
The largest boulder is easy to see from the lower boulders, but there is no clear trail to it. Hike away and you will get there. If you get lost in roughly 75-100 yds. then you should probably stay at home in the first place.

Javelina Left V6 7A PG13 AZ : Southern Arizona : ... : Javelina Cave and the A Fra...
A marathon boulder problem by Tucson standards (10+ moves), Javelina Left starts on a right facing block at the base of the seam just as the cave itself becomes accessible. Prepare for a good hamstring burn as you utilize multiple heel hooks to move left and up through pinches, edges, crimps, and slopers. Finishes a little off the deck with a terrible landing. Try to stay right on the positive edge on the face as it is hollow and certain to pop someday. Don't be the 'popper'. ...[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
