Description 

One of the largest boulders in the Black Jack Boulders, also the furthest west. The rock has a lot of potential, but needs a lot of cleaning.

On the right side of the boulder (facing uphill toward the crags) has the most potential.

The front really tall face (about 35 feet) could have some TR routes, not sure about gear routes from the ground it doesn't look like it but their maybe some small protection that is not visible from the ground.

Getting There 

Walk all the way through Black Jack Boulders like you were heading to Boundary Rock or Northwest Territories. On this trail you will walk just to the left of this obvious huge boulder.

Looks like the tops of these boulder problems have been partially cleaned, a big thank you to whoever took the time to clean it up and for picking up my slack since I never went back and finished cleaning them! Thank You!!
