The Candy Lands Boulder

The Candy Lands Boulder is secluded by itself in the woods. It is easy going on the hands and offers fun problems for beginners to intermediate climbers. Climbs are usually short and overhung on Schist rock. When hiking towards Sugar Plum Cave. You will cross a defined path going east to west. If you take a left onto this path and stay on it going down hill to the west. After about 5 minutes of walking you should be able to see a huge boulder off to the left on the side of the hill in the woods. This is the Candylands Boulder.
