This is a lone formation in the NE Hills, on the left as you drive into Indian Cove. The Teste is a single formation up on the hillside, and is easily recognized as a singluar round "ball" shaped rock, with a dihedral/crack right up the middle. There are 3 climbs on The Teste.

Getting There 

Drive towards Indian Cove and Park at the Boy Scout Trail parking lot. You need to hike down the road some more untill you get to some rock formations on the left, close to the road. There are a couple of climbs here; hike past the roadside rocks until you see some climbable rocks in the distace at the base of the hillside. Hike to these, (there are climbs here too), and look up the hillside for the round boulder formation with the dihedral in the middle; This is The Teste.
