Description

Oddly rectangular boulder with good landings. The down climb involves jumping to the boulder next to it.

Getting There

Take the main trail behind the gate all the way to the big cluster of boulders or to the second sign saying "Under Video Surveillance". From the sign turn back and head into the area from a semi obvious trail. You should see the Cube poking out.

Isn't there a classic V5? Some alcohol based name or some such. Maybe it it the V3 and we just sucked. Jan 13, 2016

Cool Thanks! I just talked to Tom today about the area. Until now I couldn't find anyone who had explored out there. I figured that someone must have climbed it before. It is definitely one of my favorite boulders close to town. Jan 6, 2016

John,

This is such a nice boulder with better than average rock for the foothills. BITD we called the Four Hills bouldering area the Gaza Strip because of the looming concertina wire bordering Kirtland Air Force Base, and the "Cube" was known as the Dean Martin boulder. The mound just to the east and uphill has some nice crack bouldering as well.
