One large, fine grained granite boulder with three overhanging faces 8-15 ft tall. There are many high quality problems and a few hard open projects on this rock - all waiting for repeats or FAs. All of the problems listed stand alone. An infinite amount of link-ups are possible, but unlisted.

Getting There 

Secret. This area is on private property (i.e. in the front lawn of my house). Drop me a message if you would like to climb here...

Sticking the crux deadpoint of New Year.

New Year V10- 7C+  CT : CT Bouldering : Lemon Boulder
Sit start matched on the obvious undercling/sidepull. Bump up the left hand and then make a long, powerful, low percentage deadpoint (in itself perhaps v8) to a decent hold at the lip. Top out with great difficulty. The V8 stand start beginning at the lip is a good challenge in itself....[more]   Browse More Classics in CT

Bogus. I saw a slew of V11s on this amazing boulder in CT, only to be let down. Rocks like this are a dime a dozen. Respect to your FAs, but making this seem like a destination or 'testpiece central' is misleading.

To you I say don't judge until you have seen it for yourself. Boulders like this certainly aren't a dime a dozen. I've seen some of the best bouldering areas in the U.S. (Joe's Valley, RMNP, Evans, etc.) and I will say this is the quality of boulder you would expect to find at one of these areas. I don't believe I am trying to represent this as a destination, however. It is just a respectable piece of rock located in a place where there isn't very much climbing.

What problems have you put up on this so far? It looks like 2 boulders, or one split boulder. Looks nice, have fun.

Howdy mday - just updated things a bit. At the moment, I am pretty close on a number of the harder projects on this boulder. If you are in the area, and would like to come check it out, just shoot me a PM!
