This is a nice little boulder that sits right beside the creek, not far up Eldorado Canyon. The west face has some good problems. It's across from the Bastille on the north side of the creek, roughly 200 yards downstream from the Milton Boulder.

Getting There 

Cross the Bridge near the Bastille and take a left at the fork. Follow the trail for ~60 yards, passing a man-made concrete structure. This obvious trailside boulder is on the left.

I think this is in some of the guides, but I don't really know any names or established grades. Feel free to give some input.
