This is a large secluded boulder that is rarely visited by many Blair-going climbers. This boulder holds a few classic lines and one or two not so classic lines. After the recent timber harvest, this boulder now proudly overlooks a large clearing, making the gem of the boulder "Optimus" that much more proud and airy.
The easiest way to approach this boulder is to follow the main trail towards the cairn where the trail splits. A few hundred yards before the cairn there is a spot where the hiking trail crosses a logging trail. Once at this spot, Turn right onto the logging trail and follow it slightly uphill until you enter a clearing. Once in this clearing hike up and left until you encounter another logging trail. Hike up this steeper hill and you will end up right in between the "Conditions Boulder" and the "Font Boulder". From here, continue following the logging trail and follow it as it veers slightly left. This large boulder will be overlooking the large clearing that you enter after passing a few smaller boulders on the right side of the trail.
