This cool-looking boulder is in the Berthoud Cave and Buddha Cave area on the eastern side in the middle of the park near the historic dam ruins. It has the bulgy problem, Monkey Shots, V7.

Oddly, it sort of reminds me of a very well-fed Cobra.

Getting There 

Follow the Lake Gulch trail from the east entrance of Castlewood Canyon. Once you cross the creek head to the right (east) for about 200 yards and look for a slab on your left hand side. There is a faint little trail heading directly up to the Buddha cave area. The left hand turn is probably 100 yards before the trail side boulder which is a very noticeable feature.
