Description:

About a minute and a half walk along the Carriage Road from the Uberfall are two huge boulders beside the road, between which the Belly Roll crack can be seen. The right, or Northernmost one is known as the Chockstone Boulder because it is split by the squeeze chimney containing a chockstone. Setup a top rope on the backside boulder (easy walkup). Climb center of the south face, follow a crack past a scoop and continue to the top.

Descent Options:

Top out and walk off or lower off anchor.

3 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable

Have to use your feet! Low angle makes this doable.

4 out of 5 stars Right Side of Boulder

-Right side of boulder is 5.11 if you do not use the arrete and stay away from the crack system starting at the bottom.
-Middle of the boulder is as stated 5.10c
-Left side can be climbed as well. I would say it is probably 5.9 if you do not use the arrete but only the crack and then move right at finish in the middle.

If you do not like slabs or tiny features and smearing stay away from these climbs

3 out of 5 stars Highball Boulder Variation

People left a toprope for some time and I wanted to climb so I did. Solo, no mats. Started on the slab then moved around the arete to top out, hardest move was close to top a finger pocket and short technichal sequence with feet. Fun!
