Description

The Lower Wawarsing boulder is not included in Greene and Russo's guide, but as the chalk marks and ticks indicate, this hasn't kept it from being regularly climbed. Because of this, I don't have any information on problem names or first ascents. Please inform me if I've turfed over someone's FA. It's a matter of a lack of knowledge rather than a lack of respect.

Located in a nice bit of forest and well protected from car noise, the Lower Wawarsing boulder has a great concentration of varied V0 problems. That makes it a great warm-up/cool-down spot, and a great place for beginners to be challenged while having a taste of success to make them want to come back for more (a great place to introduce a girlfriend or boyfriend to bouldering). The starts or top-outs are typically the most difficult aspects of these problems, so it's easy to eliminate crux or scary moves for beginners while maintaining the flow of the problem.

Getting There

The boulder is located on the East Trapps Connector trail between the northern Visitors Center parking lot and the Wawarsing Parking lot. It's pretty hard to miss as it abuts the trail. The boulder has a wire attached to its northwestern corner which is supporting a telephone pole.
