Looking south from the NRA Boulder, Black Mountain...

Description 

A collection of boulders surrounding one large "Summit Block" boulder. Problems here tend to be shady due to the Summit Block and some pine trees.

A notable problem in the area is NRA (V7).

Getting There 

As you're approaching the Summit area, these boulders will be the leftmost set in a more or less flat area, surrounding the very tall Summit Block. Descending downhill (while keeping the Summit Block to your left) will take you to The Visor.

Slip and Slide V2 5+ CA : San Jacinto Mountains : ... : Summit Blocks
Start on the rail and move up to the lip. Despite the height, there is a hole / chute below the crux of the climb, hence the "R" rating. Missing the lip may result in a nasty fall through the vortex of doom. As the Drtopo guidebook says "avoid sliding down the bomb bay"....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
