From the parking area, looking northwest
Some of the best bouldering in the area. The rock here tends to be steep, fine grained, and nicely featured. Most of the established problems fall in the range of V4 and under, although I am sure there is much potential for harder stuff.
The slope that holds all the boulders faces southeast. Boulders face all different directions and make a nice mix of sun and shade. This is up at about 8000 feet, so it tends to be cool, but I have actually bouldered here in March and on a calm, sunny winter day (rare up here) it is very pleasant.
From the summit rest area, go down Happy Jack Rd about 2.8 miles and look for the sign that says "Telephone Road". This is Forest Rd 712. Go about a mile to road 712H and then follow 712H to its terminal end. Park here, and hike across the little drainage into the boulders on the facing slope. See the photo to get oriented - better yet, buy the Bagdonas bouldering guide.

Thunderstorm is Coming V3 6A WY

Another good and steep problem that start out on some nice granite huecoes and then tops out on crimps and slopers. There is also another problem called Thunderstorm Escape just left of this that is supposed to go at V4, according to the book. It is supposed to start at the same hueco but moves left instead of straight up. I have never been able to quite figure that one out. ...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
