Description 

A boulder with impeccable rock. The name becomes obvious as you face the perfect granite rock face that holds all the problems.

Getting There 

Hike up the road towards the summit. As you approach the summit you will see a garage. Turn of the road right, just before the garage. Clamber over some small rocks and you come to the boulder.
