Routes in Arbor Day Boulder

Description

There is a lot of rock in the Blue Moon area, and much of it is spectacular, but I've always felt like this one is the crown jewel. The rock quality is bullet throughout most of its space. The landings are primarily clear and flat, and problems line nearly every side. The only caveat for me is that the boulder requires a formidable downclimb. This may not faze most climbers, though.

Getting There

From the parking, head south for a few minutes, and the boulder will be visible. Reference the page map for its exact location.

I've climbed several problems on this boulder only to reach the lip and bail out, because I'm too chicken-shit to face the downclimb. With that said, I don't have any business posting the routes, but it's my hope that someone that has climbed them or will climb them, will add them. Matt Lisenby mentioned climbing several of these to me a while back. Maybe you can add them, Matt? Regardless, this boulder is a gem and defines the Blue Moon area, and I thought I'd throw it up on here so that others might enjoy it. Mar 11, 2017
Developed back around 2000: Could not remember all the ratings, so I defaulted to V4. Pls correct them if you think otherwise. Mar 14, 2017
