Description 

One large, fine grained granite boulder with three overhanging faces 8-15 ft tall. There are many high quality problems and a few hard open projects on this rock - all waiting for repeats or FAs. All of the problems listed stand alone. An infinite amount of link-ups are possible, but unlisted.


Getting There 

Secret. This area is on private property (i.e. in the front lawn of my house). Drop me a message if you would like to climb here...

Featured Route For Lemon Boulder
Dancing Days.  The stand starts from the obvious jug, while the sit (a v11ish open project) starts low on the arrete.

Dancing Days V7 7A+  CT : CT Bouldering : Lemon Boulder
Start standing on the large sideways-tooth shaped jug. Mantle with great difficulty to reach the lip of the boulder. The sit start, a difficult project begins low on the arete but doesn't really add anything to the quality of this climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT

Bogus. I saw a slew of V11s on this amazing boulder in CT, only to be let down. Rocks like this are a dime a dozen. Respect to your FAs, but making this seem like a destination or 'testpiece central' is misleading.

To you I say don't judge until you have seen it for yourself. Boulders like this certainly aren't a dime a dozen. I've seen some of the best bouldering areas in the U.S. (Joe's Valley, RMNP, Evans, etc.) and I will say this is the quality of boulder you would expect to find at one of these areas. I don't believe I am trying to represent this as a destination, however. It is just a respectable piece of rock located in a place where there isn't very much climbing.

What problems have you put up on this so far? It looks like 2 boulders, or one split boulder. Looks nice, have fun.

Howdy mday - just updated things a bit. At the moment, I am pretty close on a number of the harder projects on this boulder. If you are in the area, and would like to come check it out, just shoot me a PM!
