Description

This large hunk of schist is one of the first boulders to be developed in the area. This boulder provides the area with a handful of neat and unique boulder problems ranging in height and difficulty. This boulder has a stellar downclimb, and most of the top outs are supplied with an array of positive holds. All in all, this boulder is a great central location to warm-up and escape the common crowds found elsewhere in the park.

Getting There

From the Main Parking Lot/ Outhouse, head down the hill past the outhouse. (Away from the info booth, down towards the Jefferson side of the Notch.) The climber/ hiker will head about 25 yards down the hill past small creek drainage before veering left off the road (same side of the road as the outhouse). Take the faint trail up the hill for about 15 yards to where the trail flattens out and creates a small clearing. From here turn right and walk up the hill up using another faint trail along the ridgeline of the knoll. Follow this trail along the crest of the small hill for twenty yards or so before a giant boulder piercing through the trees will become visible on the left side of the trail. The Tall Boy Boulder is found to the right of this proud block about fifteen yards.
