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

Utility Belt V1-2 5  NC : Stony Bald : Superhero Boulder
Sit start is hollow and sounds like it'll pop off if you pull on it, so squat/stand start doubled on the obvious horizontal fissure/edge at about chest height...pull on, move up to the slightly overhanging crack and follow this up through the dihedral to a loose and dirty top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
