This large boulder is home to the classic and atypical Caveman (V6+) which starts deep in the depths of the boulder and climbs south to north via a huecos and edges. Due to the heavily featured nature of the boulder and the close proximity to so many climbers many variations have been done up to V10 or so in difficulty.

Getting There 

Head east from the Day Use parking lot and then make a left (heading in a northerly direction) following a paved road which runs through the Campground. The Caveman Boulder is the first large boulder you'll encounter on the left and is easily recognized by it's heavily huecoed northern aspect.
