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

Take the path for Blackjack boulders from Pole 37. When at the Entrance Boulders follow the path on your right towards Monsters from the Id. Stay below the crag and when you get to the big 18-foot arete, cut right into the woods. This boulder is 100 yards down the hill and faces downhill. It is not obvious when approaching, but it is just past a stand of fir trees.

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
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

There is one good line left to climb on the boulder. It starts as The Rightest making one move to the jug on the right arete and then crossing the face and topping as for The Leftest. Sep 19, 2018
