Yosemite Valley Bouldering, CA, USA


Approach time: 3 minutes
Season: March-November
Number of problems: 88
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.

This sector lies above the west end of the campground. The Wine Boulder is the big boulder directly uphill from the Big Columbia Boulder (with Midnight Lightning).
