BETA PHOTO: Hilltop Boulder 2


Real pumpy climb. Video is easy version as officially you are supposed to stay off the lip and top out on part that looks like it could fall off one day. Official climb via vid soon to come.


After looking at the guidebook quite a few times, I think I have got the numbering figured out. On page 15, the 4 is where the 6 should be and visa versa. Guidebook pg 14:


Found in top section of parking lot boulders. Faces the main hilltop boulder. Easy to get down. On the way down, don't step on the leaves and dirt with your climbing shoes because you can break your fingers catching yourself (been there).


I would consider this a great climb for beginners wanting to break out of the V0 zone. Reason being, you can do the whole climb solo with minimal safety gear. You have two trees to fall against while your tips are getting used to holding your body weight on sharp granite, and it is close to the parking lot.

I would not recommend topping out at the highest point. It was definitely really shaky and if anyone cranked on it too hard, it could probably fall.
