Description

This is a freestanding boulder shaped like a fish with a half dozen climbs from moderate to hard. Rock quality is very good. It feels more monzonite-y than the other boulders in the area, so friction is excellent and rock is solid.

The boulder has the potential for harder climbs, some 1-2 move dynos and a left low start to “The Pescatarian.”

Getting There

This lone boulder is on the southeast side of the large hill. Definitely use the GPS point to orient yourself.

Take the “New” Indian Hollow Trail from the group site parking. This trail crosses an ephemeral stream the quickly heads up bedrock slabs and later curves around the large hill. You will pass large unconsolidated boulders that would be great if they weren’t kitty litter. At about 15 min at first large boulders the trail takes you through left a corridor, instead split right and head uphill towards the big outcrop that looks like a Goblin (Goblin Rock). Pass the Goblin and The Flounder boulder sits on a perch just south.

Alternatively, continues past the kitty litter boulders and get southeast of the large hill. This should be about a 20 min walk. If you are in a flat grassy plain, you have gone too far. Then tread up a drainage between cliff bands. The uphill walk should take another 20 min.
