Description 

Teetering on complete choss, The Sand Traverse Boulder still offers some quality climbing.

Arguably the best place to warm-up, this mushroom shaped boulder houses some of Big Bend's largest holds. If you can tolerate this boulder long enough for a quick session, the rest of Big Bend will feel like granite.

Getting There 

Follow the main trail north along River Road to the end of boulder field. The Sand Traverse Boulder is the last most significant boulder you'll reach at the end of the trail. Look for a sandstone mushroom.
