  • Description 

    This is the most obvious boulder right off the trail as you approach the woods from the main trail. It is shaped like an A and gets the guardian name from a hiker who, after his daughter asked him what he were doing he simply replied "Honey, they are challenging the guardian."

    Getting There 

    First boulder you see when approaching the boulder field. It is very obvious.
