Twenty or so routes dot the boulders a stones that are throw away from the Trapps bridge. While it is home to the Behemoth boulder and its highball test pieces like A New Pair of Glasses (V7), Million Dollar Problem (V5) and Colorful Crack (V1), there are also quite a few good warm-up problems. There are many ways to get to the top of the Boulder of the Gods (V0-), and innumerable approaches to traversing the Welcome Boulder (V0). The Stained Boulder (V1) problem and Lazy Mazie (V1-) also make for a good moderate start to the day. Don't miss the steep jug hauling and jamming on the Lorax (V2).

Getting There 

The Steel Bridge boulders are located on the northern side of the Trapps Bridge, which crosses above route 44/55 not far from the West Trapps parking area.

Keep the Lorax happy.  The trees are off.

Yes, I know Greene and Russo give it V4. It's certainly fun but not V4. Clamber down to a sitting position between the trees on either side of the problem under the overhanging back side of the Satellite #2 boulder. Start with your arms buried in the face-level crack to your left and a few good foot jams to your right now climb, crimp and jam your way up to the top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY

Does anyone know if there is an actual problem on the back side of Satellite #2 that starts next to the trees in the face height horizontal, and follows the crack to where it meets with the Behemoth Boulder, and then continues up to top out on Satellite #2? If it is a problem does anyone know its rating?
