Description 

This area is hard to find but houses what I think are the hardest project at the Cascades. The Legion Boulder is massive and difficult to climb at every section. The Legion Block could house some smaller tough lines as well.

Getting There 

Head across the hillside beyond the Pyramid Area. This large boulder is nestled in a steep drainage on the hillside. This is vague I know, but there is no signature identifier for it. If you know where to look you can see it from the trail, but it isn’t discernible unless you "know where to look".
