Pebbles is one of the few routes in the Gunks to work on your "slab" climbing skills. Although the namesake of the bouldering area, Pebbles is decidedly listed with the routes as it is a much better idea to use a rope on this one... You could "boulder" the route but it is pretty high ball. The Williams guide calls this the Chockstone Boulder, but I've always just called it Pebbles. Start on the south face just off of the carriage road and move right to the arete. Avoiding the arete is a fun variation, but a little harder. I TR'd this at least once a year in my youth. Testing my balance and often my father's patience...
Right off the carriage road below the route Jackie. This is the right edge of the tall south facing slab.
