Large boulder in the center of Middle Earth. Can be identified by large ledge that runs climbers left along the base when facing up hill. There is a nice finger crack that runs up this face above the ledge. The ledge itself has a good problem and is usually coated with chalk.

Getting There 

Uphill from Wall, Razor/Bandaid groups. Boulder H on Adirondack Rock topos. Take right heard path from Troll/Gate and then uphill herd path that heads off left past Wall boulder.

Climbing Season
