Stone Tower Boulder Rock Climbing
The arete project....
This house-sized block is one of the hidden gems of the woods and it has boulder problems all around it. Most of the lines are also of high quality. A half or a full day could easily be spent here on the numerous problems it has to offer. Discovered by Bob Parrot and primarily developed by him and Pete Otis, this boulder deserves some attention. The Stone Tower Boulder rivals the Wetamoo Boulder for the highest number of quality lines on one single boulder in the park. It also hosts an incredible four star looking project which climbs the huge right leaning arete to the left of the problem The Buttermilker. It is an incredible feature that has essentially no holds. It needs to be tried by someone who is capable, as numerous attemps by others climbing at a respectable level have yeilded no progress at all. It looks to be in the V11-V13 range. Any takers?
From the parking for the hillside boulder, continue straight on the wide trail, stay left at the first intersection, and continue walking up the hill. This will bring you to The Stone Tower. Walk to the right of it and go down a steep trail that will eventually be on your right. Walk down this trail for about two minutes and the boulder will be off the trail to your right.

The best problem on the boulder and one of the best in the woods. Start matched on a good sharp jug above head height. Get a super high right foot and bump up on crimps to get a good crescent crimp sidepull with your left. Next figure out the tricky crux sequence which involves getting a high foot on the starting hold or going to a sidepull below the lip. Very classic. Click on the link and scroll down a bit.
