New Area Added

The Legends of the Fall topo has been added to the LOC including GPS, photo, and video. This was the first boulder discovered in the LOC in documented climbing history. It seems bizarre that this boulder tucked away in a swamp at the bottom of a hill would be the first found...

Legend has it, a group of early pioneers saw the "Jizz" boulder up on the hill top above and stumbled upon this area trying to gain access. From here they headed up over the hill to the scoop boulder and then finally to Area 51 where they climbed "First Crack" which was the first V0 they happened upon - and a bold ascent at the time!
