Description

An extensive area of high quality alpine granite, easily accessible off of Highway 108. In addition to lots of roped climbing, there is a lot of bouldering potential in the surrounding area (including on the drive in).

Approach

If heading East on Highway 108, take a right on Crabtree Rd a few miles before Pinecrest.

If coming from Pinecrest Lake, follow Dodge Ridge Rd to the Dodge Ridge Ski Resort and take a signposted right turn at the welcome sign for the resort (where the one way loop starts). After a quarter of a mile or so this connects to Crabtree Rd - take a left.

From this junction the routes combine - follow Crabtree Rd to the Bell Meadows turn off. Stay left here on forest road 4N37 and drive all the way to the end, where there are several large parking lots. All of the Burst Rock climbing areas are accessed from this parking lot.

Note: Don't take forest road 4N34 from Dodge Ridge Ski Resort unless you have time to kill and/or want to go exploring. Although it connects to 4N37 at the far end, it's in much poorer condition than 4N37, and is therefore much slower (and could be impassable in early season). Lots of hunters also use this road during hunting season - if you go exploring off the road wear brightly coloured clothes.
