Dobbe pulling the roof.


Melincholy is actually pretty fun on good rock. Start low and right on the smaller of the 2 Melin Boulders. Use good holds and edges, a nice hidden jug underneath for your left hand, and traverse left to the corner and up with edges and a cool round iron knob. Kinda mossy but brushes easily, so bring one.

Low and right start on the smaller boulder.

Maybe 15-16 feet tall? Hard to tell since there was 2 feet of snow on the ground. The overhanging face has some slopey ledges but I couldn't tell with all the frost on it if it was chossy or if there were any other features. I presume it's been checked out before, it's not far out of the way.


Downhill from Barrel Ridge inbetween the Ridge and the road.
