The Pedal Boulder is along the trail after passing the Split boulders and before one reaches the Pyramid/Dish area. It is one lone boulder that houses the best hard problems at Governor Stables. Before the climbs were completed, it was called the Project boulder. None of the problems were redpointed, or even scrubbed prior to 2004. Locals had always eyed this boulder and referred it to as the future of the area. This boulder was the last one developed at Governor Stables, due to the sheer difficulty of the problems.
The name of the boulder alludes to the bicycle foot positions required to hold the lip from the undercling handholds. Joel Torretti and Anthony DiSanto are the developers of the problems on this boulder. The two main problems on this boulder are some of the most tried V9 problems in south-central Pennsylvania. They are well worth the effort. Gin & Juice, No Bedlam and Pedal Extension would be classic at any bouldering area in the country.
The Pedal boulder is along the main trail after passing the Cave/Humpback area and the Split boulders before reaching the Dish/Pyramid area. The 45 degree overhanging face is down in a ditch on the right side of the trail. It is a striking boulder with a very sloping diabase topout, and is one of the best rocks of it's type at any diabase area in Pennsylvania. The rock quality, holds and movement are impeccable.

No Bedlam was the second problem to be completed on the Pedal boulder, formerly known as the Project boulder. Anthony DiSanto used his incledible strength and reach to put up this classic hard boulder problem. Start off of pretty good underclings low near the center of the 45 degree overhang. With smeary, bad footholds, make a loong reach to an incut crimp slot on the vertical face above. Match on this two handed hold using a bicycle move with the feet (the pedal move) and then grab up to th...[more] Browse More Classics in PA
