About West Bulldog Boulder Piles:

The West Bulldog Boulder Piles are a series of rock clusters that offer some good backcountry bouldering. A few of the boulders are quite large but can all be protected with natural anchors from above. The rock varies from bullet-proof granite to the decomposing stuff. This area is new so some cleaning still needs to be done but should clean-up nicely for a good close day's climbing.
Approach: Entrance is off Ellsworth Road, in Mesa just north of the Usery Park Entrance Road. The parking lot is on the east side of Ellsworth. Its a gated entrance with the Bulldog Canyon OHV Recreation Area sign.There is a combination lock to open in order to drive in. You can obtain the combination for free at the Mesa (Tonto) ranger station off Higley Road. Once you enter the gate, follow the main road about 1/2 mile to an obvious narrow bend with a rock outcropping just pass it. Park there and go directly south up a dirt hill. You will see several boulder clusters rising out of a small valley. Total walk time 5 minutes. If you walk from the gate you can reach the rocks in 20- 25 minutes.
