Description 

This littlish boulder is shaped like a little flying saucer and houses several nice, short lines. The back side of "Cap-Gun" is much overhung while the front, downhill-most side is relatively vertical and even slabby. This is a free standing boulder with problems all the way around it with safe landings.

Getting There 

if you pass the roadside boulder and follow the streambed back and slightly uphill, this boulder will be the next one you come to.
