Description 

Laramidia's south face is the boulder's main draw. There may be potential on the north-facing arete as well. The rock quality is very good, and the landings are clear as well.

Any ascent requires a downclimb or hop-down on the boulder's north or east face.

Getting There 

It is located in the Southie Area. From the parking area, head downhill, cross East Creek, head up toward the Mecca Boulder on the dirt track, continue past the boulder about 50 yards, and then head uphill toward the cliff. Below the cliff, there is a foot path, head in a southwesterly direction and the boulder will be on the right. It is best to just look at the page map, it's tough to explain, this one is pretty far out there. It lies just west of Mothership.
