This boulder is visible from the parking pullout. Look uphill and a little left to spot a formation with two diagonal quartz bands.
The uphill side has two easy problems with good rock, while the other faces are much taller with questionable landings.

Getting There 

From the Quartz Band Boulder hike across the hill to the left and follow a small drainage up to the crest of the hill. Time from car=10min.
