The Eel River/Dos Rios Boulders

The Original/Main Dos Rios Boulders
{40+ boulder problems so far and counting ~ VB-V5/6+}
Located between the parking near the bridge on CA162/Covelo Rd on the beach on the Middle Fork of the Eel River next to the conjunction of the Middle and Main Forks of the Eel River in Dos Rios, Mendocino County CA.

I first established bouldering here ~2000. Since then many of these boulders have gotten taller due to the sand and rocks washing down river opening up many new low starts and making these fun old problems into challenging modern day classics ~~ until the river changes the landings again in the future!? :)
