This square block sits up off the road about 20 ards south of Borson's Wall. There are two problems on either side of the square cut arete. Both have undercut starts and horrible landings.

Best to climb these early before it get sto hot or later in the day when the sun is on the otherside of the hill.

Getting There 

Park at the San Andreas / Glenwood parking area. Head up the paved road passed the gate. Follow the road / path as it winds its way up the hill. The road heads North, then South and finally swings back North near the crest of the hill. Follow the road until you come to a small bridge. Drop down to the path below and follow this path East / North East. As the road swings left the boulder is located 50 yards on your left.
