Named after the fish head we found on the top of this boulder. There are bald eagles in the area which is pretty cool. This shaded aesthetic boulder lies under a unique windswept ponderosa pine tree. Don't be tempted to climb the big roof to the right of this problem for it is composed of a giant loose block that you could possibly pull down.

Getting There 

Hike around the north side of Island Lake cross the dam and walk uphill 200 yards passing some boulders on the way.
