Description 

Huge boulder with overhanging (30-45 degrees) powerful climbs that are exciting and short.

A couple of unfinished projects still remain on this boulder.

Climbs range from 11a to 13a/b

In the most recent Cater guidebook he made a mistake in describing the DC memorial boulder...There is no route #37(project), routes 38+39+40 are on the main face, #41 is the 12a around the corner.


Getting There 

After coming down the ladders follow the cliff east (left) it s the giant boulder in front of you!

Angle of Attack 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- E6 6b  WV : The New River Gorge : ... : DC Memorial Boulder
Think the routes on the D.C. Boulder are a joke because of their diminutive stature? Well There is nothing funny about Angle of Attack. This route, short and insecure, is raging with Napoleon complex.
