Lake Tahoe Bouldering, California, USA
Approach time: 2 seconds
Number of problems: 16
Type of rock: Granite
The memorial boulderís pretty funny. Itís practically in the middle of town, and itís got a gazebo built right on top of it, with another little boulder fenced in inside it. Itís kind of like a baby boulder in its crib Ė or maybe itís jailed so it canít get out and roll downtown for a beer. Whatever. Itís a glacial erratic, deposited on top of the other boulder when some ancient slab of ice gave up the ghost and turned into the Truckee River. A local told me you used to be able to roll it around up there, but now there are shims under it Ė gotta keep these things under control, you know! The problems are pretty good, making this more than just a novelty. Unfortunately, the boulder is steadily getting shorter as the Veteranís Hall keeps repaving their parking lot. We should get them to excavate a little instead.
