DescriptionA classic example of Newfoundland highway bouldering. The Mandolin boulder has some of the best moderate problems around. The high quality V1 and burly test pieces mean there is something for everyone.
Getting ThereHeading east on the highway shortly after exit 36 you come to a large green highway sign for "EXIT 37, Witless Bay Line, Bay Bulls, Trepassey" There is also a new blue sign next to it. There is a guard rail next to these signs. Park at the end of the guard rail at the base of a small hill.
Walk to the top of the hill crossing over thick bushes and a rocky area. There is a faint moose trail that leads down the far side of the hill, this trail will lead most of the way to the boulder but is very easy to lose even after you find it. Try to follow the trail across a small valley until you go up another incline with some small boulders. Continue through some small trees keeping some small ponds on your left and once you come to a highpoint you should be able to see the Mandolin Boulder in the distance. The entire walk to the boulder takes about 10-15 minutes. The boulder should be visible in well under 10 minutes.
