DescriptionLocated on the Konnarock Block:
Konnarock is a small mountain community just outside of GHSP that offers a gateway to not only GHSP, but also to the MRNRA, the Lewis Fork wilderness, and a couple smaller bouldering areas that are in the process of being developed... Don't forget to stop by Jerry's Kitchen to eat some good homestyle cooking while you out there...
The Konnarock boulder is just a few feet up the hill and to the right of the "Sever Boulder and Block" and you will find this problem to be the very first and proudest line on the boulder, and it scales up the blunt arete... Despite the name, the Konnarock Block is a full sized boulder, not a smaller "block" as it's title may suggest, but block rhymes nicely with Konnarock so I went with it. Here's the beta...
Stand start at the nice blunt arete with a right hand in the nice deep right facing flake sidepull jug and a left on the convenient edge. Gain feet and move into the left undercling. Move higher and left still to gain the upper sidepull and negotiate to the top out moves.
Walk off to the left past the nice sized Yellow Birch.
Nice FA Chris, this is a really proud arete!
