The Promised Land is exactly as it sounds. At least 200 boulder problems exist on 10 to 20 foot granite blocks. This area has a high density of problems in the V4-V8 range, and there is still a ton of development awaiting for problems in the V0 to V2 range. This area was discovered by Lynn Woods legend Bob Parrot and is essentially comprised of about 40 different collections of boulders which are all a short walk from each other. Classics include: Ridge Runner (V2), Proud Mary Arete (V4), The Maze (V6), Egg Hunt (V6), A Clear Mind (V8), and The Dream (V8+).

I got out here this past weekend for the first time and was simply amazed at the large number of problems and concentration of boulders in one small area. Bob Parrot is a legend for finding this place, and it's all quality. It would not be posted if it wasn't. Some really nice granite.

Any chance you guys want to put up some actual location beta to these stones?? Some of us are quite familiar with Lynn Woods and would love to check out all these! Thanks!

I've noticed they started the development (not bouldering problem development...the other kind). Has anyone taken a look at the plans and seen what (if any) land is being set aside for conservation?
