Description

A large triangular boulder that reaches about 20 feet at its distinct, sharp peak. The block is slightly less than vertical, and a right-angling crack separates it from the rock above its left side.
There's a small, angular hollow on the bottom right.

Getting There

Continue on the yellow dot trail and pass Hemlock Ledge on your left. The trail merges into the white blaze and then the blue blaze trail. On the left side is a ~25-foot-tall, moss-covered cliff characterized by lots of diagonal seams. The Pyramid boulder is on the far right side of this outcropping separated from the larger cliff by a small gully. It's a few minutes hike from Hemlock Ledge.

It's difficult to tell on the map, but I'll get it as close as I can. I don't think its any farther than an eighth of a mile south-southwest of Hemlock Ledges. The boulder is clearly visible on the left (east) side of the blue blaze trail. Sep 18, 2015

About how far is this beyond Hemlock Ledge, Shann? Would you be able to locate it on the map for us? (edit area>edit properties, and the map will come up. Zoom in and drag the map over the bullseye) Sep 18, 2015
