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.
Plenty to do here, especially in the moderate range.
