Description 

This is one of the tallest walls in the Rock Maze. The color of the rock is similar to that of "Golden Wall," but this particular boulder features a severely overhanging portion that stretches roughly twenty feet in length on the South side. The Yellow Wall area on the West side of the boulder stands fifteen to twenty feet high and is vertical to slightly overhanging with a tuft of rock hanging out at the top. This wall is relatively blank minus some large holds on the left portion and an obvious sidepull. The tell-tale mark of this boulder is the "Sargent 2000" engraved on the rock.

Getting There 

Enter the Rock Maze South Central Area, meandering to the right for a couple minutes. This boulder is an outward lying boulder. Look for the severely overhanging portion on the Southwest side.
