Rat Boulder Rock Climbing
One of the first boulders, immediately left upon entering the Brickyard, fairly large and with a flat top. Can be seen from way up on the hillside. This is the boulder with the Great Shark Hunt (V?) traverse.
Not sure of the real name for this boulder, calling it the Rat boulder (after the rats nest in the jug) and fits with the other animal name theme of the area. Let me know if there's a different name.
Anyhow, this boulder is pretty sweet, and doesn't get the attention it deserves.
Near the entrance of the Brickyard. Just uphill from the Ant boulder.
