The rock is pale pink-to-white granite, and forms an abundance of edges rather than Squamish-like slopers. The boulders are located at the base of a large talus slope; many boulders rolled into the forest below, providing sandy landings for some problems. Most boulders are found in the toe of the talus, however, resulting in less-than-perfect landings. Bring a crashmat! There are many pictographs in the area (on the Pictograph Boulder, for example). DO NOT CLIMB ON or TOUCH the pictographs! They are a significant cultural resource, are interesting to look at, and have substantial meaning to the local first nations peoples. Do not damage them in any way! In many instances, pictographs were drawn by young men on vision quests. As this was a new area, many of the problems may be a bit dirty, and beware of the occasional loose rock. If you want to establish new problems, feel free – a wire brush is recommended.
The Old Hedley Road Boulders are between Princeton and Hedley, approximately 1 km west of the conjunction of Old Hedley Road and the Crowsnest Highway (315 km from Vancouver)
