High quality with some hard problems characterize this boulder perched on the hill that may not look like much until you walk up and try to pull down on some of its classics. Chemical at V9 might be the best at the grade in the woods.

Getting There 

Continue down the road past the heart boulders and when the road takes a sharp right, look straight ahead and you'll see a boulder perched atop a short hill.

It's actually not too obvious in the summer with all the green vegetation, but you are pretty close when you pass the sign for sites 30-32 on your right.
