What's the potential for rock bouldering at Smarts Brook?

Jay. There probably is some river bouldering potential at Smarts brook, but it might be hard to access without getting your feet wet. There is a deeper section of gorge just upstream from the ice bouldering. There are a few icy mixed routes which were a little intimidating with the conditions that day that get you well into the broken ankle zone of fall potential. If the river was deep enough I bet you could find some lines. Otherwise maybe you could prop a pad against some protruding river rocks.
