Description 

This boulder actually consists of a small face with a big downed tree over-top of it and a large elongated blank block.
the blank block holds one lip traverse and the main fish bowl block has a few other problems.

Bouldering here isn't as good as the rest of the Boneyard but if you've climbed most everything else (and you're up for some exploring and a hike) then why not?

Getting There 

Walk way uphill, past the "Hollow Tree Boulder" and some obvious, large, (not large enough to climb) cleanly split rocks and you will find this boulder and its neighbor boulder. from the split rocks veer slightly left and you will find them.
