Beaver Boulder is the very large boulder on the north side of Cap Rock. Three aid routes and one free route are located on the rock. There are bolts at the top of all three aid routes to set up an anchor on, and there are chains and rappel rings on top of RURP Romp for an easy rappel.
Beaver Boulder is located in the southeast corner of the intersection of Quail Springs Road and Key's View Road. Park in the Cap Rock parking lot.
