Description 

Unlike the main buttress boulder area the boulders here are a little more spread out. Alot of the landings are not flat and the pads sometimes like to slide downhill.

Getting There 

Follow the standard trail like you are going to Sentinel Buttress but instead of taking the right to go up the hill continue on and down the large trail a little ways and keep an eye out for a small trail on the right (little ways downhill past the amphitheater sign). It will not be marked.

Follow this trail and you will pass a single boulder on your right. (warmup boulder with mostly easy stuff) Continue down the trail and it will curve towards the right sorta down hill. The next boulder you end at should be triple XXX boulder.

Proper Modulation V6 7A  NC : Moore's Wall : The Valley Boulderfield
The first crux is normally the first move trying to pull off the slopper ledge with poor feet. I personally like to get double hill hooks right foot under the roof and the left foot on the left side pull below and to the left of the start hold. The next hardest move is getting to the pitch at the top but once you hit it the top out isn't bad. Skipping the sit start and going from a stand is generally considered a V5 although I personally don't have any problem with the sit start and find the top...[more]   Browse More Classics in NC
