  • Description 

    This nice, east-facing, overhanging boulder offer good roof-like boulder problems with a good landing as well as a nice, low ball, traverse wall to its right.

    Getting There 

    Hike to the back of The Bastille to the notch of the Fowler Trail. A bench and telescope sits trailside. To the south is a expansive talus slope rising up to the south-southwest. Hike up the right side talus slope for approximately 50 yards, and you will see the boulder within the trees, just off the talus slope.
