The Barnyard Boulders are often climbed on, although these two boulders are obviously absent from the guidebook for reasons unknown. The small cluster of problems range from V0 to V8 with the majority of them being under V3 and is a great place for a beginner or a warmup. Mostly known for their diagonal cracks, these boulders also offer a few aretes, a fun sloper dyno, and some crimpy face climbs. The landings are all flat, you’ll never fall too far, and not surprisingly, there’s usually chalk on everything.
When walking into Natural from Reservation Rd, cross the stream and turn left around the backside of the Zoo. Pass over the remains of a tree and the Barnyard boulders will be on your right.
