Description

This is one of the better boulders in the Extensions area in terms of its landing and its cleanliness. The downside is the long approach for basically one easy (but fun) problem.

Getting There

Extensions 3 is a bit more difficult to find that the other boulders listed. The stretch of path in between the Extensions 2 boulder and this boulder is very faint and easy to lose track of.

From the Extensions 2 Boulder, you will be heading North. Walk down the rocky ramp from the 2 Boulder towards a dilapidated stone wall and pass through where the stone wall and an adjacent boulder make a narrow notch.

On the other side the notch, you will enter a forested area of smaller new-growth trees. Find your way through the trees and you will hopefully come upon a kind of clearing with some smaller but still noticeable boulders. As you come upon these boulders, you will bear right to pass by and here you will come upon the Manatee (see photo). This rock is shaped uncandidly like a Manatee and may present a climbable feature, but it is best recognized as a landmark to know you're headed the right way.

Pass by the Manatee on your left and rock-hop down a small moraine, angling left until the Extensions 3 boulder appears out of the trees. It is clearly recognized by its one climbable face and the table-like platform rock that protrudes outwards from its base, holding a cairn to mark your destination.
