A great boulder with many potential problems. It's tide dependent but, at about mid tide and all through low, your good to climb. The scenery is great so enjoy!

I've tried a few line on this boulder. Its got some really interesting formations toward the bottom. Its a fun rock but I suggest riding a mountain bike to get there to make the approach worth it.
