Description

This is collection of large steep impressive blocks semi-hidden in a little dell right close to the water. It looks like there would a good collection of hard good quality problems here. This is one of the biggest collection of large boulders I've seen in the area.

I found this area on wet day this spring. While exploring the base of the one of the boulders, I disturbed a creature in a small cavern near the base. I have no idea what it was, but it made a terrifying sound and sent me scrambling up onto a nearby boulder while nearly pissing myself. I peered down for a while hoping something would reveal itself, but whatever it was either had already fled or wasn't coming out. Still I have no idea what it was. Rationally speaking, there is nothing wild in these woods that anyone should be afraid of.

Getting There

This is 30-40 feet form the water. From the parking area, walk left around the pond a fair way. If you reach the point with the encampment on it, you've gone way too far. The location on the map (though taken from memory) should be fairly accurate.

Hi Pete,

Couldn't match this area to one of your descriptions, but if it rings a bell, let me know and I'll transfer the pics over to the appropriate spot.

Actually Jim,

This is Shoreline Boulder #1, but I like your name and descriptions and photos better, so let's keep it as you have it and I will remove the Shoreline Boulder #1 listing.
