You can see all the boulders above on the hillside. It's all bouldering with a lot of boulders to chose from. I think it's granite but I'm really not sure. I've heard it's a really popular place to boulder but when I've been there it hasn't been crowded at all.

Getting There 

Up 25th street. You can park at the gate there and just walk up the hill on the trails that get up there. You'll be able to see some of the boulders from the road

Slick 50

Slick 50 V8 7B  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Arrowhead
Slick 50 has two different starts; the original stand start, and the somewhat paradoxical sit start, which is actually easier.For the original, stand start on the mediocre underclings, and crank the powerful crux move out to the arete. Work your way up the arete until you make a small jump to a pinch. From here top out to the right via a somewhat technical and scary mantle.For the sit start, start on a decent undercling on the bottom left side of the face. Slap to the arete, avoid t...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

I visit the Ogden benches quite often for the bouldering. In the summer, the quartzite can be very slick. I usually wait til it's a bit cooler to climb. The area offers problems from V0 up to V9. It's worth a visit. And if you see any punks spray painting the rock or breaking beer bottles under climbs, smack them around for me! Have fun.

according to the book, 27th street is private property parking. not true. this is the place to park and hit the upper boulder field.

above that is the Schoolroom climbing area with 90+ routes to do just another 15 minutes up the hill. check rockclimbing.com/routes/North_...

The rock here is quartzite, similar to the Schoolroom area just above. Also similar to BCC, but this quartzite isn't nearly as slick.

I created a guide via ikiboulder.com that is quite comprehensive. You can create and print off a pdf that should direct you to any part of this excellent bouldering area.

Someone has decided to use brown spray paint to cover over either previous graffiti or chalk on Tooth and Cliff Side boulders. There's also a brand new piece of spray paint "artwork" at the top of the Tooth boulder. This obviously detracts not only from the aesthetics but also the friction of the rock.

I'm most disappointed with whichever local decided he'd like to leave his mark. Unfortunately this sets a precedent for other rebellious youths. I just hope it doesn't end up looking like that hideous rock at the mouth of Parley's Canyon.
