Description [Suggest Change]

A short boulder easily identified by it's steep overhanging (though low to the ground)west facing side. Sit start on the far right side and traverse the slightly overhung rock going left. Then finish by going up the steep blocky arete when you're under the highest point of the boulder. Using only heel hooks (V2) makes this route a good core workout, or use the easy foot rail below (V0)to bump the grade down a notch or two for some good steep practice.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Walk up the main trail past the guillotine gate. Metal Mania boulder is one of the first boulders on the right side of the trail sitting nearly on top of the footpath. The problem Metal Mania is on the obviously overhanging (West) side and follows the overhang from a sit start on the far right side of this face.

I believe you're describing the the Metal Mania boulder and the route Metal Mania which has a few variations that change the grade anywhere from about V0 to V2. There are a few more mediocre short problems on the boulder as well.

Not 100% on the name of the boulder but sure about the route. Done it many times.

Aaron, please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

I'll change the entry shortly unless theirs an objection. Apr 8, 2013

You're spot on Chad. Mind linking the topo URL in the main Nut Tree Area Description? This will help others line up problems and avoid adding existing problems as unknowns. Apr 9, 2013

Yeah hey guys, wasn't sure about the name of this boulder. Or the route. Heard of the previous name on a page I found on a site. Thanks for correcting me. Apr 13, 2013
