Routes in Boulder

Description

I don't know the name of this boulder next to the Wright's Lake main wall. I can't find information on it anywhere, it looked to me like a crocodile being bashed by a gigantic wedge on one side, and a basilica on another, hence the previous name.

This lengthy bouldering rock sits on the shelf at the base of the main rock, and is the best warm up to prepare you for the endeavors you'll surely encounter on your way up the difficult routes that comprise the climbing at Wright's Lake.

Climbing is on 3 of the four sides of rock, containing excellent warm ups from V1 and up, with the easiest route on the Southwest face. The Main Traverse (V2) on the Northwest face is excellent, a pumpy 30 foot long traverse that never gets more than 6 feet off the ground, and tops out on the Crocodile tail.

Walking off the West side of the boulder is the easiest way off, though jumping down off the Northwest face is a flat sandy 5 foot drop in most places.

A pad is recommended for routes on the Southwest face, as most contain a demanding last move.

Getting There

The long, rectangular rock on the slab is the Main Boulder.

Fair and valid... I got out of this habit a few years back after (properly!) getting yelled at by many people. I've renamed the rock, and all associated information. Oct 6, 2008

Aron, I'm not a fan of your habit of naming formations/boulders/problems/whatever when you don't know what it is. If you don't know, please resist the urge to just make something up and post it on the internet. Thank you. Sep 23, 2008
