Socorro Bouldering Guide - Box Canyon - Unexploded Ordinance Boulder
UTM 13S 0316220 3764124
A short ways down the wash from Waterfall is a large boulder on the
left side of the arroyo. Kinda highball and kinda chossy, nonetheless
there are some fun things to do here (if you are careful). Peck did
some of the tall stuff on this boulder in the late 90's, then Walker
and Colin went nuts on it one day in 2006.

routes on it.
