Dyno Boulder


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

A good mix of technique and power is required to make it up this boulder. Sit down start on a left hand sidepull, and a funky right hand. Right hand up to a decent hold, then work the feet, and squeeze and bump the left hand eventually up to a decent crimp in the middle of the face. More compression on a few slopers and crimps leads to the top....[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.

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 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.
