There is lots of bouldering across the grade spread including a 7b traverse. The guide is a bit of a monster at 21 pages (the trad routes are also included). This will not be the final version.
The old topo has been updated – 11 problems now listed. Click the link below for the little guide: https://unknownstones.com/neb-stone/

Come on weather! Give us one last throw of the dice. I can’t believe that this solitary offering is really the last that 2018 is going to give us.

Both spots just keep giving to those who are willing to brave the walk, the … More Joy of the Season to All!
