BETA PHOTO: Broken boulder south face from dirt road.


This is a monster of a boulder with solid rock and problems that line almost every side. The north-facing problems provide good shade during the summer months. Despite its size, a good down-climb exists on the boulder's west-face.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, follow the dirt road for about 5 minutes until you see this huge boulder maybe 20 feet off of road left.
