Almost There Boulders



Almost There Trail Boulder

This boulder is great for kids or people just wanting to learn bouldering. Everything on this thing is V0. Its short enough to build confidence and has a great landing. This boulder sits right by the trail that leads up to Mount Baldy. The problems are facing Away from the trail.

SDS and move up on good holds. This problem is likely the better of the problems on this block. If you have to do one problem on here this would be the best choice.


SDS move up a move and then traverse over to route #3.



Fun problem to teach people how to smear.





The Almost There boulder is a proud boulder along the trail to Mount Baldy you pass by this. Its a striking boulder with a few good warm ups on it as well as the ultra classic heel hooking problems Open Wide V5 and Torso Fritter V7 the extension to Open Wide. Great landings in a scenic valley make this a good stop on the way up or down from a day at Baldy.

Open Wide  V5****

Stand start with hands on a good sloper. Pull on and heel hook with your right. Get situated and throw your left hand up and slowly work the arête when you reach it. The top is easy just fight the pump until the end. Great problem to work heel hooking technique.

FA: Greg Parker



Torso Fritter  V7****

SDS low and make a few moves on crimps into the start of Open Wide. Full Value problem.

FA: Dan Dewell


Up The Funk  V4**

Stand start and pull on however you can. This one can be a party trick at times. Don’t sweat the bottom get ready to Up the Funk on the top crux. Mantling feels scary on this problem!

FA: Josh Dreher


Milking The Bull V9

Fun Problem that starts on a couple of scrubbed holds. Make some big moves on good holds up the arête.

First Ascent: Chris Hirsch 

Warm Up V3***

SDS on the obvious chalked holds. Work up the shallow open book feature to its end. Move out left and go for the hidden jugs up top. Pull and mantle.
