This is the second set of boulders up the hill from the Fireworks Boulder. These are also mentioned as the "many" boulders uphill after the Unclimbed Boulders, in the main description for Stony Bald. The main bouldering trail loops around and connects to the MST between the Unclimbed and First Boulders and is a much easier way to approach the Ledges and Sidepull Arete Boulders.

Getting There 

From the Fireworks Boulder in the First Boulders, follow the trail, on the left side of the boulder, straight up the hill. You will pass a boulder, the Ledges Boulder, way out left, with briars protecting the direct approach, as you hike up the hill...keep hiking up the trail and avoid the briars. Eventually the trail bears left and hits the first boulder, the Lung Buster Boulder, in this set. If you stay on the trail past Lung Buster, you'll hit the Steal Your Face Boulder followed by the Dark Corner Boulder down the hill. The last boulder below Dark Corner is the Ledges Boulder, seen from the approach on the bouldering trail on the way up the hill from the Fireworks Boulder and the main boulder seen uphill when hiking between the Unclimbed and First Boulders on the Shut In/Mountain To Sea Trail. An alternate approach and much easier to hit the Ledges Boulder, is to take a discrete trail left off of the Shut In/MST just before you see the Ledges Boulder uphill on the way to the First Boulders.

Stand start on shelf at lower left of boulder, go up to good sidepull edges around the arete, work these up and go out right to slopey edges and up to the isolated sidepull on the arete...from here, make it to the slightly vegetated edge, mantle and go straight over onto slab. Great problem! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
