The best boulder in the park. Huge, overhanging, intimidating and super good. Getting down requires downclimbing an easy arete, jumping onto stacked pads, or dry humping the curving tree.

Getting There 

See directions for Box Canyon boulders. Once parked, either head straight north into the woods or walk back up along the road until you see a trail heading to some large boulders up to the right.

The Good Times Are Killing Me V2-3 5+  WI : Governor Dodge State Park : ... : Godfather Boulder
You can't miss this line on the north side of the big boulder. Look for the set of solitary pockets out on the face. Then look at how perfectly smooth the wall is below them...Nary a wee divot nor miniscule tooth. Sept there is one out there. Start out on the boulder to the right of the pockets. With a right hand side pull on the arete, hop up into the pockets and get established. A small foot pocket way out left will let you gun it up to the lip. Climb into the shallow trough. Pretty fun...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

Here is an unnecessarily epic GoPro edit of a dozen friends attacking The Godfather (V4) and All in the Family (V5).
