Routes in Beer Boulder

Description

While small, this overhung boulder packs quite a punch.

Current problems range from V1 to V5, almost all with a decent landing underneath and all overhung.

Beware for loose rock and holds on this highly featured 10' rock, as then many potential eliminates will cause some breakage as time goes by.

Two excellent traverses cross the rock, the left to right traverse Miller Time (V2) is pumpy and excellent the whole way.

This rock is part of the Woodcrest boulders, and sits in the shadow of the larger Stonewall rock, which is just to the left of this smaller rock. All climbing faces away from the path on the overhung side of the rock.

Getting There

Approach time: 6 minutes.

From the gate heading into the open space, head left and then uphill on the dirt road about 150 yard until you come to another gate which heads into the open space on the right side of the road, and may or may not be locked. Worm your way into the open space, and continue up the path which heads uphill and is directly in front of you.

Follow this path uphill about 200 yards past several of the other rocks which hold problems, until a short (12") stone wall surrounds a large rock just to the left of the path. Go 25' around the wall to the right, and the flat unclimbable side of Oh Brother Where Art Thou Rock is present 10 feet from the path on the right.

Jesus guys, making up names for everything is fine, but putting it on the website? And then saying you "might" have it wrong? LOL!

The name of the boulder is the Beer Boulder. The traverse is called Miller Time and is V2. There is a V3 that goes right to left, but after pulling around the intial arete on the far right, all holds above the horzontal are off, Samuel Adams V3. Oct 21, 2004
