One of the best boulders the canyon has to offer. This boulder has 360 degrees of potential, with a spectacular roof formation.

Getting There 

Follow the trail right of the indian traverse until you come to a roof formation with a massive slab that covers the area below the roof. Hard to miss, can be seen from the indian traverse as well as the river bed.

The roof on this boulder is rare in PDC because the quailty of the holds on this size of an angle is 1/100 here. Essentially, theres a main shelf with two crimps in the middle of the roof where you dyno to the lip from. The right problem( The Rebirth ) starts sitting on the right/east arete on a crimp rail and heads inside to the shelf to dyno/topout. The left/west side is still a project; it starts in a nice corner with a jug and an undercling then gets nasty from there when heading to the dyno setup. Both lines are amazing and both lines are challenging. A must try if you climb in this area.
