This one is the Little Pillar's big brother. Although you can’t paddle up this one using both sides, it is quite thin and pointed at the top. Several other lines could exist on this boulder but the Rhodo tree is blocking much chance at doing anything else, and the lines wouldn’t be that great anyway. The front thin side is great however, and the height up top makes for a committing scramble over the point.
