Tuolumne Bouldering, CA, USA


Approach time: 5-10 minutes
Season: May-October
Number of problems: 15
Type of rock: Granite
Overview

The obvious big boulder in the creek just upstream from Pywiack Dome - overhangs on 3 sides, V0 slab on back. The classic roof/face problem "Lost But Not Forgotten" V8 starts under the right side of the steep main face on good rails under a horizontal roof and finishes either direct up crimps or up and right to a mega knob! The left sit on the overhang up left into a fun V0 jug finish is a classic V3 or V6 from the sit start of Lost But Not Forgotten. There is one short hard problem around the left of the main face and there are some other, easier problems on the back over the creek. The problems over the creek are best in late summer/fall when the water in the creek is lower. The long and pumpy V3 (or V4/5 full length?) lip traverse on the backside is good fun when the creek is low (V3 finish at corner or continue to next corner V4/5)! There are also a few other boulders off the trail nearby on the way down from the road with a few knobby, fun, easy to moderately hard problems.
