This is the impressive and featured face seen on the approach and is home to many challenging problems from V6 to V10 with Over the Boardwalk (V7), Left Hand of Darkness (V9) and Soul Shine (V10) being standouts.

Getting There 

Starting from the far end of The Beach take the trail past the Methane Boulder, past the Steep Sharma Arete and wind up through boulders until the obvious mass of the Glass Boulder comes into view on the left and then make a sharp right to the obvious dark boulder on the right. The approach takes about 20-30 minutes depending on your method of approach and hiking speed.
