Description

This boulder is just a minute or two hike north from Rt 165, up J.B. Hudson Trail. It is a long low boulder, only about 8 feet tall, mostly notable for the scoring and line of multiple hand drilled holes that show the technique colonialists used to split rock. Slivers of metal called feathers were placed in the holes and small wedges were inserted. Each was successively tapped until the boulders would split in two. However, each end is overhanging and there is some good climbing. What it lacks in hight it makes up with interesting holds with a number of sloper problems. The left overhang has the ultimate mantle problem. Marc Troob put up some lines here years ago.

The boulder could use a bit of scrubbing, but make sure not to remove the stuck metal feathers for historical reasons. Make a special effort to brush your chalk off before you leave as this boulder is visited by non climbers.

It is worth a stop to have a look and warm up on it a little before heading on to bigger and better things at the somewhat fingery Found Boulder.

Getting There

Driving west on Rt 165 from Rt 3, before you get to Frosty Hollow Rd, keep your eye out for a small sign for the J.B. Hudson Trail on your right. Pull in and park. Head up the yellow dot trail beyond the kiosk and gate for a minute or two and it will be on you left.
