This is Childbirth, V8.


Start at two hand holds near head height about middle of boulder. Ride the rail to the left and top out up left side of the arete.


This is a little higher up the trail than most of the boulders nearing the back side of the Arthur's Rock formation.


Probably 4 or more pads.

Warning - Tick marks, landings 

1) Always clean up your tick marks

•This boulder is right on the main Arthur's Rock trail, all tick-marks are considered an eye sore to non-climbers.

•Please don't risk future access issues by leaving without cleaning up your chalk.

2) Never damage/alter the landscape/resources.

•Please do not build landings at the Childbirth Boulder, the NCCC is working with LSP on a permanent solution to the landing erosion and deterioration.

The NCCC worked with LSP to solve this landing issue:

Please do not build landings out of logs at this boulder.
