This one definitely stands out from the rest. Strangely colored and seemingly older than the other boulders around here. A prominent orange and black rock with a flat grass landing at the bottom and a huge tree at the top. Besides the four listed here, there will probably be many more problems to be found on this boulder. Like all the spots we bouldered in northern Tanzania, the rock takes quite a bit of cleaning (read: all your go-to holds breaking off mid-climb) before the routes become solid.

Getting There 

AB's boulder is straight uphill from Rhonda's Rock. You have to go through a thin hedgerow that has a gate-like opening at the corner of the field in which Rhonda's Rock sits.

This route is the oldest and the best in AB's Boulder area. If you also happen to be "the oldest and the best", you can get a little help from a trusty tree at the top of the route and nobody will give you grief for it.Stand start on the left side of the southeast face of AB's Boulder and climb straight up solid edges and jugs to the lip. It gets a little scary just before the top as the holds stop being quite so positive. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
