Shady, in development, mild choss sandstone. Great aesthetic.

Getting There 

Keep walking on the Idaho boulder path past the War Bonnet boulder. Keep an eye out for two boulders that come together to form a dark corridor. A rock that looks like a bird's head will be suspended above the dark corridor.
