Description 

Small, obscure, and probably not at all worth your time unless you are trying to hike and explore GHSP while also climbing lowball obscura. Bring brushes, as these lines dont get any traffic aside from the occasional intrepid explorer.


When looking at the Night Boulder you will see that the front, downhill nose is very overhung and low. the left side has a low, long, overhanging slopey lip, and above it is a flat, smooth cut angled face with tiny crimp ripples along it.

Getting There 

The Night Boulder is above the Wilderness Boulder and Arete. Walk further up the hill and you will come to a short, long, squatty boulder with a low, aggressive overhang.
