Description 

This is a huge block with frustrating topography on top of the hill near the pipeline.

Besides the obvious crack, it's hard to find genuine lines here, but the rock is decent and there are holds that make for good eliminates and drop-off problems.

Getting There 

This boulder sits on the northern border of the Haskell Pond area and can be visited before going further on.

Head up the pipeline from Forest Lane. Once you gain the top of the hill, continue for several hundred yards looking for a large, muddy patch (shallow water in the spring) and low angle slab. Turn off left on an obvious path, and trend right to avoid the open slab (with the oil drum) until you see an huge steep boulder with a large crack. If while on the pipeline you pass a small pond (swamp in summer) on your right, you've gone to far.

Climbing Season
