I do not know the names of most of the problems. Possibly some are first ascents, but there's no way to be sure. I've only been here a few times recently, but know the Main Boulder has been climbed on for many many years. If anyone has more info, please add to the wiki!

This is a pretty cool place to head to with an easy approach. Since the recent fires, the boulders are much more accessible. Please take care to not trample the recovering environment.

NB Be careful of loose rock. The rock quality varies from brittle to brick hard.

Disclaimer The Grades are rough guestimates of someone that does not boulder much, so please take with a pinch of salt.
