Description 

The main north face is in the shade among some trees, but it'll be a great place to be in the summer. The rock is pretty good quality and while it's fairly close to the road, it feels super secluded. There's also potential for other ascents in this cluster of boulders that await.

Getting There 

Park on the other side of the road from the Mecca area (and a bit north of that pull off). Head towards the main cluster of boulders that include Swing Low. From there, head up the hill and south. You should bump into the cluster of boulders where Austen Boulder is located.
