Description

A brand new area, freshly created by Mother Nature! On May 31st boulders fell from the sky to allow climbers to develop and climb a brand new sub-area in the Notch.

 Sounds almost too good to be true, but the rumors are indeed true. The incident happened around 10:45 in the morning, when parts of the cliff decided they had had enough and let loose. 

Large trees were blown over and tossed aside like twigs, 20-ton boulders were bouncing down the steep hillside, coming to rest a few yards hike from the road.

 One boulder landed on the road while another landed on top of someone's parked car! The path of destruction will be clearly visible for years to come.

The area of the cliff may still be a bit active and unsafe with smaller rocks being dislodged, but at lower altitudes near the road, it is thought to be relatively safe.

Getting There

This area of the Notch is across the road from the Monarchy Boulder, and only a hundred yards or so from the Wheaties Boulder.
