Description 

The Woodcrest boulders feature a rather tight concentration of boulders in close proximity to one another and consequently are host to the largest overall number of routes unlike the more spread out nature of the Hillcrest boulders. Coupled with it's high visibility from the road and comparatively short approaches has made the Woodcrest boulders the most popular venue at the Nut Tree Boulders.

The general tight proximity of the boulders make it easy to set up a nice circuit or maximize the number of potential routes you can do if you're on a tight schedule. It's also a great place for those who like to explore a bit as no matter which direction you wander off from the main area, you're almost bound to run into another set of boulders eventually. When bouldering out here remember, there's almost always something else just around the corner.

Getting There 

Follow the directions on the main page for the Woodcrest Boulders.

Park along the street next too (not in front of) the cattle gate and walk up the gravel road behind the houses. Be respectful of the home owners when walking behind their houses and keep an eye on your dogs. Walk about 100 yards up the gravel road to another cattle gate. Throw your pad over the gate if you have one and slip through the narrow passage way to the left of the gate instead of climbing over it. Follow the trail and veer off to the left and right when appropriate. There is good climbing on both sides.
