The "Face Boulder."


Climb the right side of the face on good edges. The best problem on the boulder.

Good spot to warm up at Kelly's Hill. Book lists two other problems (Face, left and Face, center) on this boulder, but I found them to be a bit contrived...hard to not trend toward the right at some point to the better holds and cleaner rock. Either way, it's nice to do a few laps on different variations as part of the warm up program.


The "Face Boulder" is the first boulder you come to when hiking up to Kelly's Hill from the main trail/trailhead. Routes #1-3 (all named "Face") in the Bob Banks guidebook are on this boulder. See the guidebook for a good map.


Crash pad or none.
