Description 

Most find the Original Garden by noticing the distinctive large Ship looking formation poking through the trees from the road. Directly below this Ship formation (that has the Meth lab in its ass) is the Boys in the Woods Boulder.

"Its V3 anyway you head." was a great descriptor for this low start boulder. Its sit start is its meat and from that start the boulderer can head left right or straight up, each path holding its own nuiance of difficulty.

For many who developed the Garden in its heyday V3 was a benchmark grade. Many problems in the v4-v8+ range were initially identified as "v3", giving the area a certain stiffness to the grading, and at the same time motivating people to try problems that they would otherwise let a grade turn them away.

Boys in the Woods holds staple "v3's" where applying this logic towards difficulty and working through BinTWoods will result in success on other as-sandbagged a problem elsewhere at the Garden.

On this boulders extreme right a seperate sit start and link in to all variants of Boys in the Woods makes for a slightly easier sit start. Still around the V2 mark, nothing on this boulder is a gimme.


Location 

Below Ship. Uphill from Robbins Crack. From New Trailhead, utilizing the New Trail -heading straight to the Ship, passing Toilet Bowl, passing Dirt Girl Boulder, Boys in the Woods is the first heavily trampled area. From BinTheWoods it is easy to walk over to the Fight Club area, head slightly uphill and you are at The Good V3 and a bit more and your on to Azian Francois and Angry Grandma.

In orienting yourself to the Original Garden this Boulder can be a great central point.
