The correct name for this stone is - The Feature Boulder

My buddy Jon Browning was projecting this climb to do the First Ascent. One day, I brought Fred Nicole and his crew up to the Underground. I left for just a second to go to the bathroom, and when I came back, Fred was topping out Jon's project. Ooops! To smooth things over, I had to give up a line that I had FA dibs on - 4:20 At the Underground. Jon was happy with that tradeoff!

Thanks Chris - I can't even get the things I named correct these days! Named partly because of all the features on the rock, and partly because we thought (at that time) that it was one of the premier boulders at the Underground.
