Description 

Located on the east side of the road from the main Black Wave area, the Alcatraz Boulder has some fun, relatively easy problems. The area saw a lot of sun in the spring/summer with it being north facing, but there are trees that provide some shade.

The quality of the rock is pretty good overall, if you're looking at putting something new up, it might require some cleaning.

Getting There 

You can park at the second Black Wave area or a bit south at the Pool of Plenty area. From Black Wave, head down the road south just 2 minutes and it's on the left hand side. If heading north from Pool of Plenty, it's on the right hand side.
