Description 

This is a small, balanced boulder perched upon another small boulder.

Unless you're just learning to climb I wouldnt waste your time climbing here.

Getting There 

As you pull further up the hill in the left boneyard, this boulder is just above the Swing Set boulder. Also this is above and to the right from the fish tank, and bowl block and boulder, and straight up from the criminal boulder....
