Description

Any and all boulders in the woods below the Precipice, mostly north of the south wall.

The precipice is well known for its traditional style routes, but lurking beneath the far right side of this huge granite edifice is a boulder field of probably 20 large blocks and numerous smaller ones. Because of the difficulty of the problems here and its maze like character, this area has only seen serious development over the past couple of years. Many of the possible lines are most certainly hard. Some of these projects will even boast cutting edge double-digit grades. The most aesthetic lines have the added bonus of being both tall and having bad landings. A few of the area’s notable problems are:

Mandatory Overload V2/3

Pitch Black V4

Cobalt V6

Gold V8/9 (FA: Jesse Cameron)

Unnamed Mantel Problem V5

Hunter V9 (FA: Aaron Schneider)

Unnamed V5

Patrick Swayze V6 (FA: Jesse Cameron)

The Hawk V7 (FA: Jesse Cameron)

The Hawk Sit Start V8 (FA: Kory Cooper-Fenske)
