Yosemite Boulder - side facing the trail


A very large boulder with lots of problems. It is not very steep but there are some very hard face climbs with some decent eliminates and some easy climbs as well.

Getting There 

Walk down the road past the heart boulders and you should notice a trail on the left side of the road. When the road makes a hard right (where the egg boulder is) follow the trail straight keeping the egg boulder on your right. Go left at the first fork, then and cross a swampish area and then make a left at the 2nd fork (going right takes you to the sit down area). This large boulder will be on your right.

Alternatively, if you are already at the Sit-Down area, continue down the road in the direction of Pond Cave a few hundred feet to the next picnic area on your left. Follow the small dirt road from the back of the picnic area a couple minutes and it will hook around to the right and up a small hill. The Yosemite boulder is just right alongside the trail.
