BETA PHOTO: the Parking Lot Boulder


Nice steep boulder near the Deception parking lot. There are a couple of other boulders right nearby that might offer a few short problems after some cleaning.

Getting There 

Park at the DEM lot at the end of Long Pond. Drop down the steep embankment on the left side of the lot and schwack across the shallow rhododendron filled valley a couple hundred yards. Alternatively, you can hook around to it by taking the left branch of the yellow dot trail a few minutes and when you see a climbing sized boulder on the left, maybe 30 feet off the trail and up a little hill, hike up and in back of that boulder, just over the crest of the hill and you will see the slabby back of the PL boulder.

I must be missing something because I can't for the life of me find this boulder. Same side of the road right? Yellow dot goes off in two directions right?

Ok Jeff, park in the lot that you would for deception at the end of long pond. Instead of taking either branch of the yellow dot, walk across the lot and look down a steep hill with some smallish boulders and a little junk. Across the stream are a few blocs hiding in rhodedendrons. No more than 100 yds from the car.

It is south of the lot, Jeff. If you search that side of the road, running all the way over to to across the road from the Roadside boulder, you will find more boulders too. Zoom this map in and you will see some.
