The best boulder in the park. Huge, overhanging, intimidating and super good. Getting down requires downclimbing an easy arete, jumping onto stacked pads, or dry humping the curving tree.

Getting There 

See directions for Box Canyon boulders. Once parked, either head straight north into the woods or walk back up along the road until you see a trail heading to some large boulders up to the right.

All In All V5 6C  WI : Governor Dodge State Park : ... : Godfather Boulder
Perhaps 35 feet or so of continous bouldering at solid 5.12 climbing. Something like that. Start way down on the right side of the big boulder on steep arete at some really good pockets. Work up the arete using whatever feels good to the corner. Get a little rest and then start into the left tending traverse over crimps and slopers to the pointed jug on All In The Family and continue to the top of that route....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI

Here is an unnecessarily epic GoPro edit of a dozen friends attacking The Godfather (V4) and All in the Family (V5).
