Description 

Huge boulder with overhanging (30-45 degrees) powerful climbs that are exciting and short.

A couple of unfinished projects still remain on this boulder.

Climbs range from 11a to 13a/b

In the most recent Cater guidebook he made a mistake in describing the DC memorial boulder...There is no route #37(project), routes 38+39+40 are on the main face, #41 is the 12a around the corner.
