Description

Worth the walk for the two superb arete problems tracing either side of the overhanging prow. There is also a tricky dyno on the blank-looking left face, and a tall wall behind the boulder with some moderate problems. Idyllically set and rarely visited.

Getting There

Follow the main trail from the parking lot until it splits off to the left, heading to a side draw (Howard's Draw.) Follow the trail into Howard's Draw, passing much good bouldering, until the trail dissipates. Cross the streambed (usually dry) and continue on an old road until you reach a wide meadow. Keep walking and the Whale Shark Boulder will soon appear on the left. Approach time 15-20 minutes.
