Description 

One the best problems at Bozoo can be found here, "Flinger".

At this time there are no other developed boulders besides Flinger that I know of, but there is potential in the area and along the cliff line. I am creating this as a sub area to leave room for the future development.

Getting There 

Easiest approach for your first time is to head to Simpson's wall (maybe do Grounds Keeper Willy to warm-up) then walk down the cliff a few hundred yards to pass a talus field. Walk along the next small cliff for a hundred feet. Then turn away from the cliff and look down. You will see an unassuming boulder down the hillside 100 feet or so. On the downhill side you will find a few great problems.

A1 V4 6B  West Virginia : Bozoo : ... : Fly Swatter Boulder
Based on comments from Shawn and Travis I am starting to think this is the "Fly Swatter" problem. I have relocated this from Travis' down stream boulders to here temporarily until I receive confirmation.SDS on the left side of the face. Climb straight up using a gaston, and a small left hand crimp. Bump your left hand into the rounded arete and top out using a thin crack just next to the arete, and a small slopey crimp way out right on the face....[more]   Browse More Classics in West Virginia
