Working the start on Tyler. Great problem!


About halfway between the Mollusk boulder and the fork that leads to Public Enemy and Shadow of a Man is a sizable boulder to the left of the trail. There isn't a huge concentration of problems here, but what is here is quite good. A bit down the trail and to the right is a short boulder with a couple of easy climbs on it that for convenience sake is listed in this area.

Getting There 

Take the trail from the Mollusk and you will pass a couple small boulders on your left before encountering a large clearing on the left with the Tyler Durden boulder. About 5 minutes from the Mollusk boulder.

Tyler Durden V5 6C  Illinois : The Holy Boulders : Tyler Durden Area
From a sit start on two juggy holds, work upwards utilizing either a long pull off a small gaston or a big throw to a sloping jug off a crimp near the gaston. Grab a near the top of the boulder before slapping back to another sloper. From here, move right to a good sloping feature and top out. There is a variation that begins on Tyler Durden that cuts left and moves back right to join the top of Durden, and it is around the same difficulty. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Illinois
