Description 

Quite possibly the best boulder in the field for V0-V2 bouldering. Straight out of Stone Fort. This tall, well featured, perfect southern sandstone block is too good to be true.

Jugs, comfy crimps, bread loaf sloper pinches, and a lofty top make this a must-climb boulder at High Knob.

Getting There 

Down the West Osborne gravel road, this is the second boulder you will come to.
