Does anyone know if there is any good bouldering here?

There are some awesome bouldering problems and an endless supply of rock.

I wouldn't call it endless. It is one of MN's better supplies of climbable rock though.

Did you look in the route database? I've posted some pics of the better boulders especially the monster in the quarry. Try the left to right traverse of the overhanging side.

There's a couple boulders close to where the trail comes up into the quarry. Nothing spectacular but fun to mess around on. There's also a boulder right next to the trail about 25 yards southwest of Kanarazi area. It has a couple contrived problems from sit-starts.

Fall is a good time to explore the cliff base for problems especially after the vegetation dies off. Make sure you bring a brush of some kind, the rock will be covered with dirt, lichen, and leaves.

As long as your expectations aren't too high you'll find a day's worth of entertainment....maybe more.
