Start as for the False, matched on the obvious blocky hold. Climb up the face, gaining the right arete and topping out at the apex of the Boulder. An intricate, proud, and striking line.


Park at south shore beach. Cross the train tracks as if your going to the balanced rock trail. Hang a right on the grottos trail and walk along the base of the talus. After a hundred yards look up and left and the crown-like Boulder is easily visible a 100 yards up in the talus. All in all 10 minutes or so from the car. True Lies faces downhill and you probably will see chalk from the trail.


5 pads minimum and a spotter wouldn't hurt.

This is actually quite safe until the last couple moves, which are the easiest of the problem. Mar 10, 2018
