Sad Boulders

CA Sierra Eastside, USA

Climbs 250 – Rocktype Volcanic tuff – Altitude 1323m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
Similar to the Happy Boulders, except a bit more claustrophobic in places, as problems have been climbed in old water runnels and caves. The Ice Caves area has slightly cooler temperature and lots of shade.

Access notes
No problems, but avoid parking near the Kindergarten area, instead use the pull-out on Chalk Bluff Road - see the Rockfax miniguide / Bishop Bouldering guidebook for details.
