Yosemite Valley Bouldering, CA, USA


Approach time: 2 minutes
Season: March-November
Number of problems: 18
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

This is the highest concentrated bouldering area in the Valley. It is home to the mega-classics such as Bachar Cracker, Midnight Lightning, King Cobra, Thriller and the Dominator. Camp 4 is also the historic campground where climbers have lived for the past 60 years. The rock in Camp 4 has larger grains than some of the other granite in the Valley making some of the holds sharper. Because it has been the center of Valley bouldering for many years, lots of the classic problems sport polished holds and have become harder. These are the quintessential Yosemite boulders located in the middle of Camp 4.
