Description 

This large boulder feature several proud lines on either the downhill or uphill overhangs. The front, downhill side catches sun while the uphill, backside is shaded and cool. If you are lucky you will find a crew with a load of pads on your chosen line, if not recruit as many pads and spotters as you can.

Getting There 

From the top of the approach trail facing the Kiesl Boulder head right then up through a notch and you will be facing Macho King on the downhill side of the boulder.
