Description

Test your skills on the bigger of the two boulders. Many medium to small holds and negative wall angles make this block a good challenge for advanced climbers. It is not necessarily suitable for beginners, although you will often see curious park visitors approach this boulder only to be surprised how hard it is to hold on, let alone climb to the top holds.

A lot of hard boulder problems can be created here. Or you can try your fingers on some of the already established problems.

Going around the block in full circle (Traverses) is a real test for your endurance. Start out with the Right Traverse and give yourself a real challenge with the Left Traverse.

This one will get you started!

A reachy but interesting traverse that has its crux at the sloper in the middle.

Quite technical problem for this grade. Resolves nicely if done properly. Can you crown yourself king of the Aztecs?

Interesting boulder with a strenuous start. The top section is easier but does not come for free.
