About Fuzzie World - a.k.a "The Fuzzies":

Several quality boulders strewn around the hillside, plus a great view of Elephant Head... Lot's of unclimbed problems to be had, sends have been V0-V2.
Nearest town or city: Madera Canyon
Directions: To get to the Fuzzies (a.k.a. "Fuzzie World"), take I-10 east the the I-19 interchange and head south toward Green Valley. When you get to GV take the last major exit LEFT/EAST on Continental Rd. The road will curve slightly NE, and just after a mile you'll come to a 4-way stop. Turn RIGHT on to White House Canyon Rd. (Left will take you in to a country club...) Follow White House Canyon Rd for about 7 miles and you'll come to a not so obvious fork in the road. The left is a dirt road and is the direct continuation of White House Canyon, but you'll want to follow the pavement around a 90 degree curve... you'll be on the same road, but the name is now Madera Canyon Rd. You're now headed directly south. Another 3.5 miles (roughly) will put you at the Madera pay station, but it isn't "entirely" necessary to pay, since parking for the Fuzzies is right outside the Madera preserve. Whatever you choose to do, take the VERY NEXT RIGHT on to a dirt road about 150 meters past the pay stations exit. Follow the dirt road down and around for about 300 meters, and park off the road JUST PAST the cattle card. (This will put in in a non-fee area, and there are lots of campsites further down the road if you keep going.) Here's where the "gray area" comes in for the FEE question: Go back across the cattle gaurd (back into Madera Canyon Preserve) and a little trail just on the other site heads up the hill winding south east for a hundred meters or so before you come to the boulders. As the crow flies, the boulders are "hidden" in the brush anywhere from 60 to 120 meters SE of the cattle guard. Another 50-60 meters south of the Fuzzies is an apparent chospile higher up on the hill... It might have some problems worth toproping, but it's never held my interest for very long. Once you've had a hand at the Fuzzies, you can also wander back to the road, then down the hill in to the stream bed (usually dry) and there is a rocky area with a couple interesting problems and projects near a waterfall (also usually dry). If you head up stream on the top side of the road, there are river boulders that needs some exploring, and a many are quite polished... I usually just stick to the Fuzzies, because their is a beautiful view of the North Face of Elephant Head all the while you're climbing. Oh, one more thing, BE CAREFUL, as last time I went, the trail to the boulders was host to an angry skunk... he might be lingering around "King Fuzzie" - the obvious large boulder on a slope of granite. "Queen Fuzzie" is just to the right, with a "wing" type feature on the right side. There several other boulders "hidden" around the area. If you head up the Madera Canyon road (into the preserve), there are boulders spread here-and-there near the road and the stream bed. Not as concentrated as the Fuzzies, but worth checking out. Plus, it's a nice drive, and if you're up for some hiking, there are a lot of great trails in the area.
