DC Memorial Boulder Rock Climbing
The hidden gem
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.

There is a really fun 5.10b on the backside of the DC boulder. It was in the 2010 guidebook labeled as unnamed with no stars. We had a blast knocking off some moss and figuring out the moves. Very cool movement the whole way and great oppurtunity for pictures.
