Some of the best boulder problems I've ever climbed have been one offs. Problems that aren't part of any distinct area, are generally out of the way, and don't see much traffic if they see traffic at all. Growing up in northern NJ these were abundant. Glacial erratics almost define the topography of the highlands region. Now that I live in the Southwest they seem even more abundant, and easier to find! I've taken to keeping a pair of shoes in my work pack on the not-so-off chance I find something worthy in my travels.

So lets have 'em. Pictures if you've got them, stories if you must, beta on finding the things if you're willing.

You know, gems like this:

Top of the bush is right around 6' high, topout is probably 18-20 feet.

More of a "handful-off" than a one off, but it's my thread so I'll allow it.

Here's a nice boulder problem I found in Illilouette Canyon a few years ago. About 15ft total, maybe 5.10a/b.

Hey geigs
this is from your neck of the woods, I think.
Kind of a one-off, back in Howard's.
It was my birthday FA, called it One Stop V2.
