Description

This is a newly posted spot (6-12-19). Two main sets of boulders, with smaller boulders surrounding. The closer boulder seems to have a good west face and a south face (see photos), both with seemingly good crash pad placement. The back boulder, the one with little boulders surrounding it, is slightly covered in plants, and would need to be cleaned fairly well before routes could be found. It does have lots of potential, but the ground in some spots in pretty slanted. Doesn't seem like too many problems would be harder than v4/5 but I didn't spend too much time trying it out.
Watch out for poison ivy, spiders, and snakes. I didn't see any poison ivy or snakes, but it's better to be safe. I have seen and heard rattle snakes in this area before.

Getting There

Parking at 38°45'46.8"N 77°12'23.3"W (little side road pull off on Hoose Rd, same parking for Springfield Bouldering), Walk right down trail before bridge (trail head might be overgrown depending on season), short 0.4 mile walk down to a slight opening in the trees on the right at 38°45'54.4"N 77°12'25.2"W.  Walk into the woods up the hill to the boulders. In the fall/winter the boulders are very visible from the trail, but in the summer/spring, it is slightly harder to see them due to the trees.
