Perhaps the most beloved boulder in all of San Luis Obispo. Since the area is limited in outdoor bouldering possibilities, she's a well developed little guy with a slabby topout and easy walk off. Don't be surprised if you see little kids and dogs waiting to greet you on the top. Gentler than her brother Pete, you'll find a lot of people working her subtle nuances. If this were the Happies, she'd only have two or three problems, but since it's SLO, there may be well over 20.

Getting There 

From the main trail up Bishop peak, you'll look up and see two obvious boulders, Chlorissa's the one on the right. You can't find it? This website isn't going to help you.

The Corner Route V0- 4-  California : Central Coast : ... : Chlorissa
The name says it all. Up the corner (Right side of the topo picture). I have seen at least four variations using different holds and sequences, so get creative and have fun. The crux comes at the top. Look for hidden holds on the right,just over the edge, and then on the left and avoid barn dooring off....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
