Description

this massive freestanding "boulder" is easily recognized as there is nothing else quite like it around. Shady most of the day with noon to dusk being the best (if its chilly outside expect to it to be more so here). rock quality is good with areas of choss (nothing big though just small pebbles and rock dust).

Getting There

upon getting to the Mecca follow the right "trail" (goes through the boulder field) staying on the inside of the fin.
