Description

This is shady, bug-ridden, accessible but otherwise secluded. A few flakes are close to popping off, but otherwise there are sturdy, positive features on this prominent roof problem.

Getting There

This is accessed from Hemlock Pool Rd., just north of the fork and east of the Hemlock Pond. It is directly off the path on the left.

Is the overhang in the left of the photo climable? Looks like a sweet lip traverse. Nov 13, 2016

This boulder is definitely a lot of fun for how few routes are there. Thanks for putting it up! Nov 12, 2016

Agreed. I'm also trying to catalog Fells boulders/cliffs in here. For example, I found a boulder the other day near Highway Cliff and I called it "Slopes Boulder", because it sits on the northern slopes. It has quite a lot of dirt on it and doesn't appear to have been climbed in the past; however, this park has been popular for decades upon decades. So it is a safe bet that if it is below V5 or so, it's been climbed. I'll going there today to clean it up a bit. There are at least two hard climbs (maybe in the V4-6 range) that I will likely name if I send them, but list the FA as "unknown", just because I can't be sure, and I don't really care about FA's. I'd be pumped if someone else came and sent it before me! Nov 7, 2015

Well I guess it doesn't hurt to start locating/naming them. Jul 31, 2014

Boston Rocks just sort of mentions that there are lots of boulders in the woods. The Black and White Rocks area is well defined except for boulder problems. Chances are extremely good that all climbable boulders in the Fells have been climbed in the past. Jul 30, 2014

Someone please tell me if this rock has already been featured in Boston Rocks or done by you/anyone else. Jul 25, 2014
