DescriptionThis is pretty silly... Dont come here looking to find this, its not a destination in any way-shape-or form unless you like doing mantles (and I mean REALLY LOVE mantles) because this is all that is involved here...
That being said... this IS an awesome place to press out some mantles at the end of the day, or to practice some tough presses if you feel like you need to spruce up on them.
If you passing by, why not?
This is a big, elevated disk where you start sitting down with your hands on the lip, kick up a heel, and push for all your worth.
Getting Therecontinue a few yards past the Autumn Boulder and the Jet Boulder, past the massive fallen hollow tree, and look deep into the forest to your left. you will see a small unassuming boulder face (that you may otherwise second guess or walk past). this is the Tuna Boulder.
Once at the Tuna Boulder, walk to the right (parallel to the trail) and you will see the Yates Boulder.
Yet again, Keep walking (away, but still parallel with the trail) and you will see the Electricity Boulder (slightly larger than the yates).
From this boulder, continue back and right until you reach the Wonder Boulder.
from the Wonder Boulder, walk straight back until you reach a jumble of boulders. there will be a slabby boulder to scramble up and ontop of this will be a long, thin, horizontal block with a deep featureless roof 3ft off the ground. this is the Mantle Block.
