Rat Boulder Rock Climbing
One of the first boulders, immediately left upon entering the Brickyard, fairly large and with a flat top. Can be seen from way up on the hillside. This is the boulder with the Great Shark Hunt (V?) traverse.
Not sure of the real name for this boulder, calling it the Rat boulder (after the rats nest in the jug) and fits with the other animal name theme of the area. Let me know if there's a different name.
Anyhow, this boulder is pretty sweet, and doesn't get the attention it deserves.
Near the entrance of the Brickyard. Just uphill from the Ant boulder.

Start on the obvious rats nest jug, and move right following a series of great overhanging jugs. Pull into the scoop prow on the right, and either top out back left through the sloping channel (recommended) or go straight over the bulge (awkward, slightly harder to protect).Either way it's good fun, and one of the best moderate overhanging routes around. Great for laps.Description in O11 is kind of vague (I don't get it?) so if this is wrong let me know....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
