Baboon's Bottom Boulder Rock Climbing
Another problem in the center right of the face. ...
This is a low boulder with an ugly backside containing a few short problems. It is right along the trail near the Kong Boulder. It's still granite, but the texture in the rear is unusual and surprisingly jagged and juggy.
This is the second largish boulder on your right after you pass the Old Pen Boulders heading towards Kong. It is pretty near the Kong Boulder.

This is a low ball traverse starting down low on the left side of the ugly rearend of the boulder. It is sort of one and half star problem but a decent warmup on unusual holds. It was named after a Pileated Woodpecker that was flying around overhead when I climbed it. Start on good slopers with body tucked into to low overhang, then traverse right using generally good holds. Go as far as you can, but I matched at a good sharp jug and threw up and right for a topout hold. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Massachusetts
