Description 

This is a HUGE boulder on the east side of the road from the Pool of Plenty parking area. From the parking lot, head across the road, up the hill, while heading south.

The rock is pretty crummy, but it was still a fun time. It might just take folks climbing on it to reveal the gem underneath.

Getting There 

Head south and up the hill from Pool of Plenty parking. It's a giant boulder with a slabby east face and an overhanging north face with lots of huecos.

Climbing Season

For the Nine Mile Hill area.

Weather station 15.4 miles from here
