Description 

The Superhero boulder is about on par with the rest of Stony...slightly overhanging and still a little chossy with a few hollow holds to watch out for. The climbing isn't that difficult (V0-V3) with plenty of crimpy rails and nicely placed edges, but topping out most of the routes is a little intimidating! Many of the routes some would consider highballs and have dirty loose scrambling at the top outs. Pack your cape and utility belt (along with an extra crashpad) and you should be fine though.

Getting There 

From the White Squirrel/El Swiper boulder and the problem El Swiper, follow the bouldering trail to the right of the boulder, around a short hillside to the Superhero boulder.

Featured Route For Superhero Boulder

Star Spangled Shield V0 4  North Carolina : Stony Bald : Superhero Boulder
Sit start, below the V knotch at the top of the boulder, on some crimps and edges and follow well placed mini edges and crimps to the knotch at the top. Be careful of the right side of the knotch as it seems a little detached and could pop off if pulled on too hard....[more]   Browse More Classics in North Carolina
