  • Description 

    Welcome to the main event of pebble wresting at Old Castle. Here lies the infamous and local urban legend of a boulder "The Steve McQueen Boulder".
    Not quite sure of the Historical significance of this title. None the less the McQueen Cirque is home of some of the more popular and concentrated problems that exist on this hillside. Problems range in difficulty from V0-V11!!!

    Getting There 

    From Roadside Cirque head up social trail 100 yards to start of Hillside Cirque. From here the McQueen Cirque is visible up hill to your right, (northeast). Follow distinct climbers trail another 100 yards right and you have arrived. The McQueen Boulder is the large rectangular block just above the Indian Cave Boulder.
