This massive block was once a part of the short cliffband directly behind it until it suddenly cut loose after a particularly heavy winter rain years back. Gone are the two cracks on either side (Fists of Fury, a 5.10a fist crack and Enter the Dragon, a 5.9 squeeze chimney) but in exchange there now exists the hardest and one of the best boulder problem in all of Joshua Tree - not such a bad trade really.

Getting There 

Veer right past the Streetcar Boulder on the way to Gunsmoke to reach this block.
