THE THAILAND BOULDER

The Thailand boulder is a huge boulder that sits on a rocky ridge that is the obvious way to spot the Playhouse Boulders. To reach this boulder you will need to cross the creek and veer left go around the shoulder of a small hill following the dried up creek bed heading north for about 150-200ft. From here turn right and head east up the hill. Once on top of the hills look to your right (southeast) and you should see it on the ridge. This boulder has potential for some scary highballs. Most of the easier terrain has been climbed. The tall overhanging north face to the left of black west face slab is a project for the future.
