About 10 to 20 foot tall Gneiss wall. It is shady and mossy and has lots of ice in the winter. It starts off not very tall and by the end is highball or rope climbing.

Getting There 

Park in the pullout off of route 80 that people use for the main climbing walls. Instead of walking over route 80 follow the main trail in for less than a minute and take the blue blaze trail on the left. Follow that for about 10 to 12 minutes and you will be able to see Foster pond through the trees. You will come up to a steep downhill followed by a steep uphill. Before you go uphill turn left and follow in the valley about 20 yards and the boulder is on the left.

Ski-bum Cowboy V6 7A  CT : CT Bouldering : Foster Pond Area
Sit start variation to Britany Spears. Crux is the first move.One of the better climbs around...a hard start, good holds, and a high top out make it the best and most difficult line at foster pond. Unfortunately, this climb is often wet. summer seems to be the best time for dry rock here. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CT
