The Big Time Boulder. This is the view upon first...
|Some areas require a guide.|
The Big Time is a cluster of large boulders near the summit of North Mountain. The size and configuration of the boulders provides for nearly all-day shade on most problems, making this a great warm weather destination. Due to the size of these boulders, most of the lines are long. The rock quality is excellent.
Beginning from the East Parking Lot, wind up towards "The Chains". Hike along the chains to a flat area where the chains terminate. Head due South for ~50 feet, then weave through the Small Potatoes boulders. A small open area is reached, and an enormous, leaning boulder with a striking NW arete comes into view. This is the Big Time Boulder. (The approach to the Gymnasium heads off to the west from this point, through a narrow chimney.)
