Large boulder on the east end of Section B of the ...

Description 

I'm not sure if this boulder has a name or named routes. Perhaps someone who knows can pass on the info and I will update this. It clearly had chalk from previous climbs on it. There's maybe 2-3 routes on it. It's the first large rock you come to heading west on section B of the Billy Goat trail. Not far from where the trail leaves the C&O Canal and right when you get down to the river.

The main route starts on the climbers right as a sit start. Work up the small incuts and ledges working up and left. Find a place to top out. It gets reachier at the top and much harder the further you try to work left.

On the far left side of the boulder there might be another short route. Use the two obvious ledges for some dynamic moves up to a grippy sloper on top. Topping out is a bit nasty. I tried to clean up some of the vines on top.

Any info on this area would be appreciated.


Location 

This is the first large rock you come to as you get down to the river heading west on section B of the Billy Goat trail. As you come down hill to the river look back right.

Crash pad makes landings nicer.
