28' Tall Boulder
Private Property - Access Sensitive MORE INFO >>>

Description 

One of the largest boulders at Bozoo, this Behemoth welcomes you with two large faces. On the downstream face you will find a 28' slightly over-hanging face with what appears to be doable lines (beta beta??) on the river side there is a 50' long face that is generally slightly slabby with fine grain slopers crosshatching the entire boulder. There are a half dozen established lines on this face with more to be done for the industrious moss remover. The Derecho has made this area a wasteland, but most of the problems on this boulder have been re-established with the removal of many downed trees and branches.


Getting There 

Hike along the river until you reach the two 18' tall boulders sitting at the edge o fthe river just across from Lick Creek. From here hike straight up the hill to the can't miss it cause it's HUGE boulder!

Really fun practically every hold is a pinch. Start a few feet right of the tree. Using some fancy footwork climb up the meandering slab. A couple tough moves at 2/3 height gets you to a spicy top out. Scope the top first and clean more holds!...[more]   Browse More Classics in WV
