The "Found" Boulder Rock Climbing
Almost ready for prime time
Somehow local climbers have been walking or riding by this boulder for years without seeing it even though it is only five minutes up a main trail from Rt 165. Luckily when Dana Seaton and I were out hunting for boulders, while I ran into the woods to check out a boulder that turned out to be 5 feet high, he walked ahead a few hundred feet, stopped and caught sight of it down in a rhododendron hollow.
About 14 feet tall at the high point, there is climbing all around, with two really good routes on the overhanging aretes. Most of the routes are fairly fingery, so bring your crimping strength. If you have the time, It might not be a bad idea to warm up somewhere else nearby (like the Roadside Wall or at the Hudson Boulder on the way in)
Park as you would for the Hudson Boulder - Driving west on Rt 165 from Rt 3, before you get to Frosty Hollow Rd, look for a small sign for the J.B. Hudson Trail on your right. Pull in and park. Head up the yellow dot trail beyond the kiosk and gate. In a minute or two you will pass the Hudson Boulder off on your left. Continue straight on the trail over the hill for another few minutes. As the forest changes from mostly pine to more deciduous, keep an eye off to the left. The Found Boulder is about 150 feet off trail, down in a hollow with rhododendrons
