Description 

The Superhero boulder is about on par with the rest of Stony...slightly overhanging and still a little chossy with a few hollow holds to watch out for. The climbing isn't that difficult (V0-V3) with plenty of crimpy rails and nicely placed edges, but topping out most of the routes is a little intimidating! Many of the routes some would consider highballs and have dirty loose scrambling at the top outs. Pack your cape and utility belt (along with an extra crashpad) and you should be fine though.

Getting There 

From the White Squirrel/El Swiper boulder and the problem El Swiper, follow the bouldering trail to the right of the boulder, around a short hillside to the Superhero boulder.

Featured Route For Superhero Boulder

Krymptonite Arete V3- 6A  NC : Stony Bald : Superhero Boulder
Sit start doubled on a knob on the right side corner of the Superhero boulder, go up the arete using well placed sidepulls and edges, past a few jugs and hollow holds to a suspect top out. The more this is climbed and the top is cleaned up, it might become one of the better problems at Stony. Best route on this boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
