Description

This boulder is windy. It climbs better when cold. The rock quality is great.

Getting There

Take the trail from the parking lot before the Bear Lake lot. Hike on the trail, and turn off the trail to head up a small plateau. It's the only big boulder up there. It's not to hard to find, and the lines are super obvious.

I would disagree with the posters remarks about the ease of finding this problem. I have been to the boulder quite a few times and always end up stumbling into it after 20mins of hiking (off trail). Park at the Glacier Gorge Parking Area and hike about 5 mins on the Glacier Gorge trail. There is a climber's trail that breaks off from this trail that should be fairly clear. Head up and left of the creek until you break the tree line (10-15mins, may involve bushwacking). The talus field (which is really a ridgeline, that comes down from the top of the cliffband) should not be far off. Hike downward (5mins) until the boulders tend to become more scattered. Lonestar's problems will be facing away from you, but it is indeed a sizeable boulder. Aug 24, 2009
