Description Suggest change

This is a boulder created by Monolithic Sculptures, Inc . It was recently installed in Hales Corners Park. It is a memorial to Jake Knapp, an 18 year old avid climber who passed away back in March 2004 due to a sudden seizure. His family donated the money for this rock to be placed in the park. There are plenty of trees around, so the area is shady. Although the rock is synthetic material, it is unbelievably like bouldering on real rock. You may have to put up with kids who like to play around the rock. It is surprising how many different problems are on this boulder. Tons of pockets, edges, and jugs all over this thing. Its great!

Getting There Suggest change

The boulder is in a wood-chip area immediately south of the Pool area and West of the Basketball courts.
