Cynosure is a medium-sized boulder made of high quality, gritty sandstone. The east face, vertical wall has a handful of boulder problems, and the west may as well. The landings that surround Cynosure are very good with the exception of the tree at the west face.

Getting There 

The best approach would likely include parking at the Pool of Plenty. From there, follow the private property's fence line to the northwest, reach the dirt road, follow it north for about five minutes, and the boulder will be visible on road right shortly before the water crossing at North East Creek. Reference the page map for the exact location.
