Description 

This is a large, cleanly cleaved boulder with excellent dark grey stone that is home to a couple of excellent, albeit short routes. Lesbian Lust (5.9) and the Right Side Arete (5.10a) are the routes to do here and are well worth the 45-60 minute approach. This can be a good place to visit if the weather is cold and windy with it's lower elevation and fairly sheltered location, not unlike the Bond Boulders.

Getting There 

Park at the south parking turnout (see OZ overview for details) and head west in the wash past the turnoffs for Valley Of Voices and Emerald City. About 500 meters past the Poppie Field Boulders you'll encounter a rough section with some boulders, after which the wash levels out and becomes sandy again and opens into a broad, open valley. Turn right (heading north) and aim for some dark boulders lying at the base of a rocky hillside; the boulder is hidden for most of the approach but becomes visible when almost on it.

Directly behind the boulder with Marsupial Lust (5.10a) is where you'll find this short north-facing route.Committing but easy moves above a bad landing lead to the first bolt (climbers 6' or taller may be able to stem off a boulder and clip the first bolt) above which fun and well protected moves up large edges lead to rap anchors on a ledge.Like a lot of the routes in the area this is on the short side but it does have some fun moves and good rock...so give it a whirl.
