Big Rig Boulder Rock Climbing

This is a beautiful, massive, dark, and fully featured boulder lower down the hillside in the Wild Wood Area. Big Rig is mainly comprised with very dark Metamorphic Sandstone loaded with enormous to tiny dropstones, but also has green Sandstone faces. From steep roofs to slabby uppers, youre going to find numerous angles and problems to suit any boulderers appetite.
