The West Side - Sommerset Boulders
Traveling west, deeper into Sommerset, one can eventually reach the West side zone.
Here one has a choice of several different clusters each with a number of problems. The best of the three formations in our opinion is the lower west side, home of Broken Promises, a V2 highball straight up the middle of the tiered broken cliff shown in the photo to the right.
From this base one can explore several other boulders around the area.
