This is a thin-ended boulder with a bulbous top block portion... A really unique feature to the area, with a similarly unique dyno problem.

Getting There 

This is the lower, dirty-looking boulder off-set in the scrub from the Warm-up Boulder. Push to the end closest to the trail and you will find the business.

Climbing Season
