Description

An impressive, tall, featured boulder, the Yellowjacket Boulder may be the best yet found in the Waterville Area. The boulder sits high on a slope in a peaceful wooded setting.

Whereas many of the boulders in the area are characterized by a lack of holds, by some geologic anaomaly, the Yellowjacket Boulder is covered in edges, jugs, and most interestingly, pockets. Climbing on this boulder feels more like climbing on limestone than on granite. This boulder has something for everyone. It's got lowballs, highballs, easy, hard, and moderate problems, all with pretty good landings. There's still potential for other stuff too.
