  • Description 

    This outcrop is one of the best in the area. It has everything: bulges, jugs, flakes, cracks, lowballs, highballs, good landings and scary landings. The left end of the boulder is easier and lower, while the right end holds the harder and highball problems.

    Getting There 

    If following the trail from the South Pond boulders, when the trail starts to descend and the Middle Pond is in sight, you will pass a small boulder on your right and a broken up outcropping on your left. Work past the right side of the broken outcropping and the large Departed outcrop will be on your right near the top of the hill. The huge overlapping flakes makes recognizing this rock easy.
