This is a nicely featured boulder with a prominent low roof. A number of fun problems including Buck Rogers (V2), Flash Gordon (V3) and Chadinator (V7) make use of the features from various sit starts.

Getting There 

Hike up the canyon, passing the Warm-Up Boulder on the right and continue on for another 30 meters or so until a cluster of boulders appears on the right. The first one encountered is the Flash Gordon Boulder, but not obvious at first as the problems are on the backside.
