Getting There 

Park at the base of Erie near the store. There is a white gate blocking an old road at the trailhead for trail 48. this is the traditional way to most of the lower climbing on Erie. A short way up the trail that follows the fence on the right and you will see a faint trail on the left. Follow it up and under the power lines and you will see the boulder in the trees beyond the clearing.

Description 

Possibly the best boulder this side of Gold Bar. there are several easy problems and at least two VERY hard lines to be had. The original guide book left the hardest face out completely.

Start under the right side of the overhanging uphill face of the Goliath Boulder. Go straight up using slots, side pulls and gastons from a squat. A tricky and dynamic move to bad holds around the lip guards the transition from the overhang to the slab above, or maybe you can find a better way).
