This boulder currently has sensitive access with nearby construction so until it's fate can be worked out please keep a low profile.

Getting There 

This boulder is worth finding. Enter the power lines passing the Split Boulder and head to the Evil Boulder. Enter the woods on a path heading left and uphill to reach the Vegabond Boulders. From there, head downhill through the Valley Boulders and locate a stone wall that heads uphill. Follow that wall until it stops but keep going straight up a few more minutes to reach this big erratic.

Is this the Behemoth Boulder? This was the best boulder in the area, IMO. Every face had an awesome problem on it and the landings were solid. Unfortunately I think it's dangerously close to the housing development (they were leveling a bunch of land just north of it on a strip connected to the main development (circling around the quarry).

Did anyone get back to you about this? I haven't been to behemoth, so I can't say for sure. Ask DCT.
