Has anyone been to Emerald City? I read a few articles online saying that it had great beginner to intermediate probelms.

I've checked out Coffe Shop and liked it, but from what I hear Emerald City is actually much better bouldering.

I know the Red isn't really know for it's bouldering, but it's nice to take a day and not tie in every now and again.

Questions, Suggestions, Comments?

There are a few free standing boulders, but most of them are kinda chossy. Coffe shop has much better rock, but only one true boulder.

The best concentration of problems is in Skybridge, it's probably the best bouldering area in the red.

The truth is that the Gorge does have lots of boulders. The problem is that there are only a few clusters. The best ones are: sky bridge and the junkyard. In my opinion, the junkyard is better, and has lots more potential, but it takes a while to get there.
