Some of the pictures in this post are scans of slides from about 15 years ago and some are digital taken all during that time. Enjoy the pics.

In the last two seasons there has been others that have made there way up to this area after I mentioned were it was when at an area nearby. These fine folks have done some new problems and repeated a lot of what I and my friends did a few years back. I am very glad to see others climbing hear! That is the point of developing boulders. Writing this post is about giving some history to the area on how things started. I will end this one for now with a map to the area. In the future as I have the time I will post more detailed information on problems and grades. I recommend checking it out and enjoying it for what it is.
