Earthshine is a large boulder with more surface area than height. The north-facing overhang is highly featured and sits over a mixed landing. The rock quality is good throughout.

Getting There 

From the second parking of Zephyr, cross over the fence, then head uphill almost directly to the east, and the boulder will be visible. Reference the page map for its exact location.
