The Shroom Boulder and the Hourglass Boulder both got taken out last year by huge trees. It is still possible to climb some of the problems on each rock but it is not nearly as good as it used to be - soon maybe the trees will fall off to one side or just dissapear.!? The Johnny Cash Boulders and the rest of the boulders in Shroomland are still good.

The Waterfall Boulders are across the hwy and south of the Shroom Boulder and are all good - Waterfall Crack (V3r) is the first area you come to with a V3 stand or V6 sit start prow to the left of it and a big boulder above it with a jump start V4 and a V7 sloper problem. The Diamond Boulder is the furthest south and is a gem! In the afternoon when the sun light hits the steep west face it quickly dries whatever bits of moisture are on the holds. High tide hits the face but on a mello summer day it's usually dry. There are only 4-5 lines on it but they are some of the best on the North Coast - left to right:
"Left Eye" V7 - "The Matrix" V5 - "Diamond in the Rough" V3

a fire recently burned some trees around shroomland and at the same time the dangling part of the tree that fell on "vise grip" V4 and "between a rock and a hard place" V6 got removed! so i think only the "hourglass boulder" might still have a tree on or near it and i think even it might have gotten cleared out with the fire - so some of the best problems in salt point are all good again!!

The map is a little bit confusing at times. When looking for the Johny Cash boulders there are lots of little pullouts on the side of the road, where as in the guidebook it shows 2 distinguished pullouts. Also the wooden fence on the west wide is a lot longer than in the map, making it hard to pin point where to park and head off into the woods in search of the boulders

Another heads up is that the Fisk Mill Cove area is recently closed down, so you can no longer park in that lot. instead your forced to find a pullout and walk.
