Description 

This fantastic Rock Garden boulder has become a favorite medium for local artists. Aside from that chaos, the boulder possesses an alternative utility that includes some awesome bouldering. It has potential for development of problems that range from lowball to highball on good to bad rock.

Getting There 

On road left coming from the parking lot, it lies just west of the Desert Storm boulder.

Not that it is hard to mistake American Graffiti for all the graffiti, but the map is showing the wrong boulder. 38.94137 -108.48481 will point to the right spot. And the graffiti is now unfortunately a lot worse than in the photo shown here.

Thanks for the correction! I know it's a maze out there and any additional direction really helps.

As a note, the boulder locations I have marked on the page maps for MP were not done with a GPS device. I simply find the boulder on MP's map software and mark it as closely as I can. Often times though, through repeated attempts and failures, I find the particular location of a site is different when I return to the map from when I originally marked the location.

So, I either don't know how use the software, or there's a glitch in the system. Nevertheless, the difference for the location is often marginal, and I believe it hits close enough to find the target location.
