The best boulder in the park. Huge, overhanging, intimidating and super good. Getting down requires downclimbing an easy arete, jumping onto stacked pads, or dry humping the curving tree.

Getting There 

See directions for Box Canyon boulders. Once parked, either head straight north into the woods or walk back up along the road until you see a trail heading to some large boulders up to the right.

This classic line was first cleaned and bouldered by Dave Groth in the mid eighties. Early repeats by John Sherman and Eric Zschiesche, during their Stone Crusade tour in the 90's. This tall, steep, beautiful problem hosts an awesome series of side pull and gaston pockets. The movement flows well with a wide selection of footholds, and positive handholds while steadily growing harder until the lip which sports a rather thoughtful mantle. It aint over until you're standing up....[more]   Browse More Classics in Wisconsin

Here is an unnecessarily epic GoPro edit of a dozen friends attacking The Godfather (V4) and All in the Family (V5).
