Description 

Unknown boulder near the north end of the Rim Road area.

This was a cool boulder for beginner/intermediate, V1-ish.

I did not find this boulder listed, so here is a pic just to help others. I'm not a PA local and it was clearly climbed a lot as there was chalk on a lot of it, sorry I don't know the name. There were several fun easier routes here and one harder one. If someone has names for the boulder or routes, please update it. I'd say it's generally V1, except 'the hard route' #4 starting right hand on the right edge of the west side.

The crux for the north face (what I marked 1,2,3) is near the top simply because the holds are a little smaller. The west face sit starts were kind of hard too for us as novices, but standing starts were easy to get going and fun still.

Getting There 

On Rim Road, park at the picnic table area after passing several other parking areas. There were two walk down paths, north and south. Go north down a rocky little drainage path and then turn a gradual right 180. It's the first big boulder there.

Getting down from the top is an easy walk down to lower ground.
