This is the wedged boulder in the back of "the room" in between the tiger-side boulder and the beast boulder. There is only one boulder problem on it, "hourglass", but its pretty fun. It may be wet if it has rained recently, but if its dry you should give it a go!

Getting There 

Walk past the overlook and get onto the trail. a few seconds down the trail you should arrive at the room, which is a cave-like formation made by two boulders; the Beast Boulder, and the Tiger-side Boulder. The Hourglass boulder is wedged between these two and is deep in the back of the room.
