Description 

Horan says that the colors on this rock "appear to be melting." Well.... maybe. Look for the low, sloping ledge on the north/nw face that looks like an enticing SDS problem.

Getting There 

It is about 50 yards past Chain and Prow Rock and maybe a few feet lower on the hill as well.

Per Brady Hogan: park at the south parking lot at Carter Lake, and walk in on the Fawn Hollow Trail (Trail Starts close to the outhouse). This boulder is located in the middle of the Carter Lake bouldering area and is touching the trail on the right side. It is directly under the Mighty Wall.

this is a great climb. If you start right of the # 2 in the photo and traverse the whole thing right to left not using the top till you top out at the far left (not seen in the photo), it is wonderful
