Cockfight is directly below and beside the trail be easy to miss if you arent looking for it. The boulder has a slightly overhung main face (toward trail) and a steep roof that is blocked by a smaller block on the river-facing side.

The name here is derived from the sweet, sweet Mexican resturant not far from the Guest, El Palenque.
