Access Issue: Avoid private land on approach to public areas Details


The main line on the Church boulder - starting on the Southern side of the boulder (the side closest to the road and the powercut) - sit start left hand on a 2-3 finger pocket and right on a bucket. Left toe and Right heel hook, move right up to an ok pinch, big(ish) move left to a bad pocket-edge/gaston formation, match, then follow pockets left and around the corner until the large diagonal crack on the west face, topout. The last moves are eliminates and also the crux.


To get to the Church boulder: From the powercut, head Northeast into the woods on the trail marked with a sign labelled "Bypass." After about 50 feet, cut right into the woods off the trail. Walk for approx. 150 feet over a moderately beaten path over fallen wood until you reach a boulder sitting on the sloping hill.


A few pads that can be slid along the traverse by a spotter.
