Boulders that have been ground and rolled by the action of water and ice present a smooth, ergonomic face that invites challenge and exploration. Immoveable and sometimes a bit tricky to access, children acquire skills of traction and balance while gaining ascendancy over the playground.

Personal achievement in conquering the height can find reward in discovering a snug place for reading or just sitting in the open air. Gaps, cracks and holes afford the possibility of communication with a friend from one side of the pile to the other.
