Numen is a medium-sized boulder. There are problems on its north and east faces. Its rock quality and landings range from poor to great. The boulder is easily identified by the crack on the east face.

Getting There 

From the green gate parking area. Head downhill on the foot path, cross East Creek, head uphill a short distance, make a left on the dirt track, make a right when near Birdhouse, and continue past Moby Dick and uphill toward the canyon rim through a sagebrush meadow. Upon reaching Gunny Gold, head south about 20 yards. Reference the page map for a precise location.
