Description 

This keel-like boulder is overhung on two sides, steeply overhung on the prow and has a walk-off on the north side. Mid-day during the summer can be hot, but overhung faces are shady. This boulder will climb well through the winter as it will be protected and receive good southern light. The top of the prow is 10 feet.

Getting There 

It's across from the new Brewpub. See In-town area description.

As of now, route setting is still on a volunteer basis for this boulder; however, we're lobbying the town to set aside a budget to pay setters which would greatly improve the quality and freshness of problems. The Park Boulder across from Eddyline has been neglected for a while now, but I did get out there a few days ago with a buddy to start cleaning this one up and putting up some coherent lines again. With any luck, these problems will be in top form by next summer!
