This is a nice little chunk of rock with an obvious prow. It has a bunch of fun lines for you on excellent rock. The namesake route is a really fun low-end moderate that will have you smiling. It actually lies just north of Wampatuck Rd. It is approached via hiking up the dirt road a short way, then breaking off right on the first faint trail, heading E for a ways. It lies just N of Burger Boulder. Descend to the R.
