Spoiler Alert: BBQ Lives! Suggest change

The Dope Boulder is a large hunk of rock located just across the road from The Danks parking lot. From your car, walk to the power box that is plastered with stickers, turn so that you are facing the paved highway, look both ways, and then cross the street. It is pretty obvious and easy to find.

The Dope Boulder contains at least three separate problems and can easily be climbed on by two people at the same time. The climbing is anywhere from V0 to V1 and can be used as a warmup for other boulders in the immediate area. Think The Trout Boulder at Shadowlands or the Sick, Overhung Boulder at The Ice Box.

"Routes" from left to right;

"GateWay Jug, V0." First accent by Luke Kretschmar. A good sit start on crimps leads to jugs located on blonde rock a foot or two left of the finger crack.

"Smoke Dope, Worship Stan, V1." First accent by BBQ. A good sit start on crimps leads to a plethora of holds you won't need to use in and around the thin crack in the middle of the boulder.

"Canna-Bliss Send-Tiva, V1." First accent by BBQ. A good sit start on crimps leads to more crimps and jugs at the top. Stay to the right of the finger crack that goes down the middle of the boulder from its tallest point.

You can either down climb or mantle to the top of the boulder and walk off the back. Four or five laps on this cool boulder will get you warmed up or pumped like crazy.

Location Suggest change

You can see it across the road from the parking lot. REMEMBER! The Danks Parking lot is the paved pullout between The Sunshine Wall parking lot and The Shadowlands/Ice Box parking lot.
