Description

This is one of the main Chopping Block boulders with it's perfect height, flat landing, quality rock, and easy approach (though that last one goes for all of chopping block).

Getting There

From the Chopping Block entrance, at the Mount Rushmore sign, head up the gully between Wrinkled Rock and Chopping Block. Go all the way through past 'Wrinkle In Time' and 'Puppy Stew' and keep straight (west) into the forest down the hill. This will bring you directly to the boulder, if not, you should be able to see it at least.
