Routes in Black Velvet Boulder

Black Velvet V3 6A
Classic Curl V0+ 4+

Description

The Black Velvet Boulder, so named for the healthy accumulation of black lichen on it's north face, is a tall and impressive block with two notable problems. Classic Curl (V0+) and Black Velvet (V3) are both technical for the grade and high enough to elicit some sort of reaction from most who climb them.

Getting There

Hike west past the western-most picnic table and then head south skirting the rocks on your left. The tall boulder with it's velvety face will be quite obvious. Plan on 5-10 minutes from the car depending upon where you've parked.
