The rock is similar stone to Eldo, and not like the softer sandstone that is primarily in the area. There was a write up in Rock and Ice (Miniguide in Rock and Ice #89, December 1998, Cover photo is a guy ice climbing) that gives a good description. Lots of hard problems with a flat landing...
It is right in the middle of Matthew Winters Park. The main trailhead is just south of I-70, and the Morrison exit. There is an easier way to get to the boulder than approaching from this trailhead, but, I wouldnt know how to describe it without getting somebody lost. So, to approach it from the main trailhead... Park at the West parking lot, and follow the trail into the valley. Where it splits, take the lower trail (take a left). After, I guess, about 1/2 mile or so of easy biking/running trail, you will see a big square boulder about 100 yards downhill on your left. It's pretty obvious when you get there.
