  • Description 

    This boulder is the first one you encounter if you choose to rock hop across the lower "lake". It is on the south side of things and is recognized because of a fairly steep east face and a nice vertical/slabby north face. The landings here are generally good and the problems not too tall but be wary.

    This boulder does not have the famous Potato Chip problem. That is located about 100 yards to the west on an obvious chalk-covered slightly overhung wall with a deep gully on its right.

    Getting There 

    From the main trail, opt for rock-hopping around the right side of the first lake. After a few minutes you will see the boulder to the south.
