Description 

This is the LRT's most visited area. The approach cant be beat and the boulders are fantastic. With classics like Tigerside, Beastmaker, Strength Of One, Abyss, The Hive, Honeycomb, and a perfect Warm-Up Wall to get loosened up on... Whats not to love?

The lookout offers visitors a taste of the Highlands, and the boulders start directly beside of it. The Bil-lingual boulder is the first fun problem you will come to from the lookout, and the line of boulders stretch on from there. Either walk on the trail which will lead you directly to "The Room" where you will find the Tiger Boulder and the Beast Boulder, or hug the line of boulders facing the road for lines like Abyss and Strength In Numbers and Strength Of One.

The Hive, Warm-Up Wall, Space Boulder, Foggy Mountain Fin, and the Kung-Fu Boulder are located past the Beast & Tiger Boulders.

Enjoy!

!!Classic!! Start out from the sit, with half of your body under the arÍte, feet squeezing the belly of the boulder. Your hands will be on either side as well, left hand on the bottom-most small slot, right hand on the jug ledge. Swing a right heel to hand-foot match the ledge with your right hand. Move up along the arÍte staying to the left (moving right is the problem called "Man-Child) and climbing the tall side of the boulder until the highest point.
