Pope Creek Boulders

Pope Creek Boulders
My grandma was from nearby Pope Valley so this is part of my heritage. Not the best quality rock but for how back country it feels it is a cool little spot. Easy public access along the creek with good fishing and roadside parking for the wilderness area. Not worth a long drive unless combined with other nearby areas but good if you're in the area since there's not much around :)

* = low quality
** = ok/average
*** = good!
**** = great!!
***** = world classic!!!

1 V1** stand start 1-move-wonder.
2 V2* right sit up left into #1.
3 The Pope V5** low left roof sit right into #1.
4 Heritage V4*** same low left roof sit up left.
5 Heritage Traverse V5** same sit then go left.
6 V0** sit start short bulge pull onto big ledge.
7 V1** low left sit start on rail up to ledge.
8 V4** bulge traverse from #6 to #9 or reverse.
9 Poison Oakey V1** slab face traverse on back.
