Description

Stand start at the crimpy bulge with a right facing flake at 6 feet. Climb up the flake to the blunt arete of the Descent Slab and top out on the right facing slab above that.

Location

To the left of the weird tree growing over the lip of the boulder

Protection

one or two pads since a fall off the top out could land you pretty far back off the boulder

Todd, Slabadon aka Eastman problem, was renamed by a group of climbers who came up to McKenzie in the late 90's early 2000's. They renamed many boulder problem names because they didn't have access to any information, or they thought. they did get in touch with Chris H., and Chris gave them the original names but they still used their new names in their New England bouldering guide.
Hope all is well. cheers, Bronson May 15, 2017

I'm not familiar with where slobodan came from, but I do know that the old Adirondack Rock refers to this as "slobodan AKA The Eastman problem" and I know some guys who still refer to this as the Eastman problem. Nov 3, 2015

I always assumed it referred to Slobodan Milosevic and that the spelling was a mistake. If you don't know who he is, you should google him. It makes sense since he was in the news a lot right around when this area was seeing its big wave of development. Oct 17, 2015
What the hell is a "slobadon" and why is there one at McKenzie Pond?

While familiar with the route, where did "slobadon" emerge?

Is it a dynosaur? Oct 17, 2015
