Description

This is the portion of Hemlock ledges developed by boulderers, generally centered around the Hand of Man Cave and to the left. The Hand of Man Cave is roughly right of center of the ledges and should be pretty obvious as the cave structure up the hill as you approach Hemlock, with some scary looking lines, maybe the best being the roof crack called Manhandled. To the left of the cave there is a break and there is an overhanging bouldering wall up the hill a bit with a couple nice easy warm-ups on the right and Lucy Humphreys's V10 on the left. Moving further left the wall reconstitutes itself, generally being about 25 feet tall and covered with holds. Use you best judgment on whether you want to throw a TR up or highball /solo. There are many trees up top for anchors. There is a lot of mostly easy traversing potential if you bring some scrubbing tools.

Getting There

Follow same approach for the tr crag and then head left along its base.

there is also the project between the dead wood cave and the zig zag that climbs what looks like a 15 foot slab. Climbs much harder than it looks with highball topout and crux.... only worked it once with one pad (not enough protection). Feels like it could end up going at V6/7 which would be a nice addition to the area...... Oct 13, 2013
thats the "Ziig Zag crack project" aka "wheat thins"... i was out there there the other day taking a walk and was surprised to see that the start rail has been broken.. i guess there are some other people working on this line too. the start rail used to be a flat edge and now is a little more sloping, not as positive if you get your heel up..... as far as i know it still has not been linked bottom to top.... we are all trying to get the straight face line with out using the block on the left that sticks out of the slab way right..... feels "hard" to me!!!

There is a steep wall with a project that Jamie, Matt, and Marc have put some work into. I think all the moves have gone, with and without the shelf to the left. Jan 20, 2013

Dana, left of the cave, up the hill a little at a break, there is an overhanging wall with obvious chalk on it. Do you know anything about it. I was by myself and top outs were kind of wet so I didn't try it. There were a couple nice easy warm-ups to the right. Jan 19, 2013
