Description 

Decent bouldering on the backside of the chin. Some nice traverses and some exciting top outs.


Getting There 

From the parking area in the front of the park, head towards the back of the picnic area loop. You will see a blue blazed trail heading down towards the river, take that trail, once at the river, cross the man made bridge over the small drainage and instead of taking the blue trail up a steep hill, go right on a red blazed trail up a less steep hill for about 100 yards and the bouldering will be on the right.

So, would i be correct in guessing that by this places namesake, the boulder/boulders here are huge and highball? or is there a massive cliff that is the giant?

Checked this area out... it was fairly limited but still offered some bouldering possibility. it was a beautiful area of the park i had never been to before with nice afternoon light. But it was just one small cliff 10-20 feet high, slippery traprock holds, and about 50 feet wide. no standalone boulders though. does anyone know of any other boulders elsewhere in the park ? its near my house...

There are a few boulders at the north end of West Rock that need to be climbed. This is within a mile or two of Sleeping Giant. I'd love to get out there with a spot sometime.
