Description 

This boulder is one of the smallest at Rock Creek, but despite its size it has the highest concentration of stellar problems in the area. All the problems feature technical moves on perfect granite over smooth flat landings.

The rock is so good that there are numerous link ups and eliminates that you can whittle away at if you tick all the major problems.


Getting There 

Walk in to the campground and cross the first small stream using the fallen tree at Gong Show Wall. Walk south and cross the larger stream again using a fallen tree.

Once over the river head south (left) and follow the trail close to the river. After about 60 yards you'll see the Clearcut Boulder on your right. At this point swing right then left and you'll see the boulder straight ahead.

Groove and Arete V4 6B  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : The Boy Named Sue Boulder
Sit start with left hand pinching the arete, and the right on a good small flake. Make a stiff pull to reach a sharp pinch for the right hand, then move up higher on the arete with your left.Continue moving up the arete with your left until the crux pull gains a good hold for the right up high.From here seek out the small but positive holds up high and complete this excellent problem.The problem is also good from the standing start, but for the full tick you need to start from sitting....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
