This is the first boulder of the First Set. This is the one you can see from the road, and the first once you come to when you walk in on the very short trail. The first problem you see will be the corner of Providence, but you are most likely going to walk just a touch to the right to the large clearing that sits below the tall face of Hooker, Looker, and Cooker. This boulder also sports climbs such as the classic Slobadon, and the overlooked V3 variation of McMidgetson. Getting down from this boulder is sometimes a challenge. You can either down climb the Descent Slab, or you can jump down basically over the start of McMidgetson.

Getting There 

Right off the road. You can't miss this one.
