Priest Lake

7 Boulder Problems


Huge granite eggs in an alpine forest, with free camping and a great little river nearby. The problems are generally good, though the rock tends to exfoliate somewhat at first. The area would be amazing except for one fact - most of the boulders are almost completely without holds. As a result, there are not as many problems in the area as one would expect. Over time, it'll be a great local area, but be prepared to scrub! If you are visiting, bring wire brushes, a saw, and a sense of adventure!

Directions / Travel Info:

Head to the northeast end of Priest Lake (the Lionhead Unit of the park), then head up the ROUGH gravel road that parallels Lion Creek on its north bank for 7km. Eventually, you'll reach a large graveled area (free camping here!) on your right. Parking here, and walking a few meters up the road, you'll see huge granite blocks in the forest to your left. A trail will lead the short distance into the forest. The problems in this area represent the greatest concentration of established problems at Priest Lake. Hopefully, motivated people will continue to develop the boulders and the area will grow.
