Tuolumne Bouldering, CA, USA
Approach time: 1 - 5 minutes
Number of problems: 15
Type of rock: Granite
A cascading waterslide flows into a tranquil pool of water adjacent to these big boulders around the base of Puppy Dome’s south face. Just a short walk from the huge parking lot down a nice trail is all it takes to get to the test-piece of the Tuolumne area, “Thunderbird” (V11/12) and many more classics at almost every grade in between. A few old and new school mantel test-pieces are also found here, along with the mega chill spot next to the river, which on a hot day is also a nice swimming hole.
Notable Bouldering Problems
Machine World Traverse V3****, Excalibur V3***, The Gallery V0****, Bachar Mantel V3*** and the class-sick Chris Sharma Tuolumne testpiece; Thunderbird V11/12****!
