Description [Suggest Change]
The Big Time is a cluster of large boulders near the summit of North Mountain. The size and configuration of the boulders provides for nearly all-day shade on most problems, making this a great warm weather destination. Due to the size of these boulders, most of the lines are long. The rock quality is excellent.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Beginning from the East Parking Lot, wind up towards "The Chains". Hike along the chains to a flat area where the chains terminate. Head due South for ~50 feet, then weave through the Small Potatoes boulders. A small open area is reached, and an enormous, leaning boulder with a striking NW arete comes into view. This is the Big Time Boulder. (The approach to the Gymnasium heads off to the west from this point, through a narrow chimney.)
