Description 

This boulder, as its name hints at, welcomes intrepid Highcountry boulderers as they approach the Horizon Area. This is a smaller boulder when compared to the looming giants in the distance, but it’s a great place to warm up and get loose before jumping in the ring with what lies ahead.

Getting There 

As you approach the Horizon Area, look off the trail on the right hand side in the distance. There will be a tiny little boulder sticking up. The HWB is strangely shaped and a bit overhung at its base. Try to follow a mowed path to get to it and try not to trample any plant-life besides grasses on your way to the boulder.
