Description

Slabby and crimpy, great boulder in the woods. You'll easily see why it's called The Wave, with the large curl at the top of the boulder.

Getting There

Turn right at the Warmup Boulder off of the main path. This boulder is a few hundred feet straight up this path on the right, one of the only ones in this specific area.

[Hide Comment] Very sharp, crimpy, and delicate problems. This boulder stays wet for a long time, so not a good rock any time soon after a rain. Bouldering book I have puts most under V3. Grades are fairly light, IMO. All the face routes on this boulder feel much harder than V3. Feb 17, 2011
