Travis, this thing IS awesome. I have to say one of the best chunks of stone in the state. The direct looks like V6ish(let you know tomarrow!). But as far as missing it- its on the first fin of rock, most people only climb at the main area. Mar 24, 2010

For the life of me, I cannot find this boulder...
I've been out a handful of times looking for it only to head back to the cube with nothing to report. Any help? Feb 13, 2011
Travis, when you get to the saddle between the two rock outcrops (the part of the trail before you get to the stairs and the (east)end of the first outcrop is to your back) hang a left up and behind the large fin of rock and hike the top of the ridge (west) back toward the parking lot. The Jesus boulder is on the left of the trail and should leave you with only one thought, Jesus! Good luck. May 1, 2011

This boulder is really impressive. The support boulder at the base takes a bit away from it, but you quickly forget about that once you climb higher up. Bring all the pads, it's taller than expected. Sep 12, 2011

Landon, on the hike towards the Cube and that area, when you get up to the saddle between the two ridges head back towards the direction of the parking lot(west?) This boulder is on the end of the bluff. Once you see it you will know. Good luck! Oct 28, 2016
