Routes in Eastern Bulge Boulder

Description

A new boulder (to the party who cleaned it, at least) that's pretty well hidden, but easy to get to.
It features two obvious sloping arete lines; the left line is quite a bit tougher than the right.

And something that's definitely worth noting: this is a great place to finish off your session, once your skin can't take anymore sharp holds. The rock is really smooth by Rumney standards.

Getting There

We lumped this new bloc we found in with the Black Jack Boulders because it's so close, although, it technically feels somewhat like a separate area?
Basically, if you're walking west on Buffalo Road head up into the woods about 15 yards before the wood stairs at pole 37. Follow the obvious drainage uphill for about 200 yards and you'll hit this cool, Font-esque boulder.

Very good point about the path, or encouraging a new path, rather.

To be honest, we got spun around the other day and wound up off the blue trail, but I can't really say where, for sure. It was only my sec on time at Rumney, so if you've got a better way of describing its location or relation to the Monster boulders (I've never been to that area) please do not hesitate to edit away. As far as Rumney goes, we were total neophytes and found this by complete accident. Sep 24, 2014

Nice find. You should try to figure out an approach from above, off the blue flagged trail, rather than making a new path off the road, especially one up a drainage. Do you think this is close enough to maybe be listed in the Monster Boulders? It sounds like you are getting pretty close to them. Sep 24, 2014
