The Hardman Boulders are a collection of roughly 60
problems located on the banks of Cranberry Creek.
The boulders are a gneiss type
rock similar to that found at the Hardman Bluffs and at
Victor Lake Wall. There are a variety of grades present
with the V4-V6 range especially well represented.
That being said there are plenty of good moderates
and few of the current projects should come in around
V8. While the landings are not quite as nice as those
at the Cranberry Boulders they are still good and are
much better than those at Eagle Pass. This area is now
more or less developed, however there are still a few
harder projects waiting to be sent. It’s likely that the
boulders have not seen a whole lot of traffic since the
developers moved on, so bring a brush and expect a
Leave Revelstoke and drive west on the Trans-Canada
Highway over the Columbia River. Turn left at the
lights onto Highway 23S and zero your odometer.
Drive for 26.5km (3.2km past Blanket Creek Bridge)
to the junction of the Hardman FSR with Highway
23S. Turn right onto the Hardman FSR, zero your
odometer, and drive for 0.8km to the first junction on
the road. Take the left fork and continue up for another
4.2km. You should reach a bridge with a locked gate
over the Cranberry Creek. Park in a small pullout on
the side of the road, walk about 20m back along the
road, and follow the trail marked by blue flagging
tape into the boulders. The road is in reasonably good
shape and four wheel drive is not necessary. There is
currently work being done on the power project on
Cranberry Creek and therefore some truck traffic
may be present on the logging road.

Please do your best to keep the Sendage database free of duplicates.
Only create a new entry if you can't find the climb in the search results.
If you don't agree with the grade, suggest a new one when you tick the climb off.
Don't intentionally misspell the climb to change the grade!
