Unknown Roadside Boulder
A little less than half way between Needles and Blythe, on our way back to Tucson, we pulled over to the side of the road with our new portable climbing wall, and found ourselves amongst a slew of basalt boulders. Have they been climbed? Probably. Does it matter? Not really. We we just excited to take a brake from 14 straight hours of driving to climb something other than fiberglass and resin! This was a great problem, and though time was short, there were literally hundreds - if not thousands - more littered on both sides of the road. Will we go back? Maybe some day... but now we can add a little flavor to our ever growing feast of places to climb in the west! I love the desert! If you want directions, it's not hard to find. If you live in Needles or Blythe and haven't climbed there, I'm very supprised. It's worth an afternoon of climbing now and then. These rocks deserve some more love!
