Chocolate Boulder 1 and the Negropolis above. Phot...


This is the first boulder encountered upon reaching the Chocolate Boulders and is also the largest boulder here. Swinging Richard (V4) with it's left-slanting crack/rail is the gem here but other fun problems exist. An easy descent is found down the south side of the boulder.
