Tall Boy Boulder 

The Tall boy boulder sits on the path above Shogun and is basically a warm up for the harder problems down towards the river. But despite its moderate grades, this boulder is a must-do as the routes are tall, engaging and just harrowing enough to wake up the mind and get the blood flowing...

Despite a fair bit of scrubbing to get these lines in shape, we do not claim any first ascents. If anyone out there was the first to do these, please drop a note and we'll add your name and info to the record.

This area is dense with Poison Oak, tread with care or face the wrath!

Getting There 

Walking down the path towards Shogun, instead of veering left towards the river, walk another 20 feet and this big pyramid shaped boulder becomes visible up and right off the main path.

Jersey Turnpike V5-6 6C+  California : Lake Tahoe : ... : Tall Boy Boulder
The aptly named Jersey turnpike (As in that drink you make out of all the old drinks sitting around after a party, the one that will make you hate life!) We chose this name because this problem sits smack in the middle of a pretty heinous patch of poison oak... so tread with care or you too will be "hatin' life" ....This problem is currently an unsent project, but its such a cool line it deserved a place here on MP. Come mustered for over-hanging crimps and edges leading to a hair-raising roll-o...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
