This boulder has an obvious rectangular face if you look at it from downhill. The rock is solid on the rectangular face, but on other sides and top the rock is soft and peels off easily. The rectangular face has potential for difficult problems. One side has some good, steep slab. You can walk off the boulder on the uphill side.

Getting There 

This is the farthest north boulder in the Upper Caprock area. There is a medium, flat boulder leaning against its rectangular face.
