A large, flat boulder resting atop another that creates a sheltered overhang all the way around. While not the true geographic center of the area it has the feeling of being in the middle of everything.

There are several steep lines on the uphill side.

Getting There 

When looking uphill, HUB is the boulder to the left of the large block that has two white streaks that look like an "11".

Approach from the main canyon by switchbacking mostly straight uphill past some large broken rocks. Stay to the right of the enormous 50 foot tall split boulder that has a mature saguaro on it's right.

From these holds, make a powerful and desperate cross into a good incut, then continue left to the lip.
