Description

There is real granite in Chicago! It comes in the compact size of a lowball boulder. So for the difficulty of each problem to be true, you have to follow the "contrived" rules for each line. It's so small that otherwise you can turn everything into a v1-2. Also, you'd be missing out in some really fun movement! So bare with the rules to each line. All they are is maybe omit using one side of the boulder, or only use a hold to start on. Otherwise, when you can't get away from the city, here is a real boulder to play on!

Getting There

It's the obvious boulder in the middle of the small park.

How can there be 4 star problems on a 5 foot boulder? I get that you're excited about real rock in the city but come on. May 11, 2018
Honestly, this is my first time trying to gauge something, so I don't know that it is. It's just my opinion, other people may come climb and give it a lower rating. Then that's that! Jun 20, 2018

Actually after giving it some thought, I brought them all down a star because of it being a lowball. I guess it should be insane to get a 4 star. Jun 20, 2018
