Slightly overhanging face with a prominent horizontal crack going the length of the Boulder about a foot off the ground. The top of this Boulder is dirty so be sure to check your topout before you get on these climbs

Getting There 

From the trail go downhill and to the left through a few small boulders until you see the large block with a crack running parallel to the ground about a foot off the ground. This Boulder is slightly more uphill than the Cat Scratch Boulder but on the left
