The Biblical boulder is the largest boulder in the Northern Park and possibly Palisades State Park. The MWC ( Minne-Waken Cove a.k.a. Holy Cove) is a beautiful bouldering area if you wish to escape the crowds or feel like an adrenaline rush this would be the spot for you. Peaceful and yet untouched lets help to keep this area as clean as we can. Most of the Climbs in the area feature small crimp holds as well as sloping jug holds. All the routes on this boulder are HIGHBALLS sometimes feel like mini free solos.

Getting There 

THE MWC is in the Northern part of the Park. Just behind the State Park Guest house. ( White house when coming into the park.) Follow the grass trail north until you reach a small bridge in which THE MWC spills into Split Creek. Hang a right here and follow the small path along the Coves wall. The first thing in sight should be the Biblical Boulder.
