Description

The Zoo is a fantastic area to warm up, cool down or j ust hang out in all day. Consisting of a large concentration of moderate boulder problems, making it a great place for beginners as well as the more advanced. The zoo also has some of the most classic problems in all of Pawtuckaway such as Hobbit Hole (V3), Bolt on Top (V1) and The Professor (V5) . Because of this it is a definite must stop for any visiting out of towners.

Getting There

Follow the trail until you approach many boulders on the left and right. Once you cross the small stream go left and you will enter the zoo boulders right by Hobbit Hole. The Split Boulder is to your right.

It's one of Rio's old problems. Julian is right with V4ish and it has been falling apart for years. The hole is creepy but I haven't seen it be a problem for anyone. It's either Rio's Problem (not to be confused with the other one just downstream), Rio's Smaug Problem, or Smaug's Face. Mar 6, 2012

It's a nice V4ish problem, but it's got some potential for nastiness. You definitely don't want to slip off the feet at the start and jam your self into the gap between the boulders. Plus, some of the flakes are pretty hollow. Fun climbing, though. No idea about the name. Feb 29, 2012
