Description 

Also known as Mosquito Rock, this boulder is located in the middle of a quiet meadow. The area is perfectly flat, thus plenty of space to place pads, recline, and chill. There's about 5 or 6 climbs around the rock, though you may need to give some lines a good cleaning since it is seldom visited. The rock has a built in warm up route, and several enjoyable climbs with some potentially difficult lines if you're creative.

BEWARE: Summer climbing here is either uncomfortably hot or plagued by mosquitos.

Several harder climbs on the central face and deep right corner that have not yet been logged.

Easy downclimb on the left side (obvious sloped face next to the tree above the warm up.)

Getting There 

Located in a meadow less than a quarter mile from the Swinging Bridge parking area (north side of the river, access by turning onto Chilnualna Falls Road from Highway 41). Drive past the Chilnualna Falls parking lot and cross the steel/stone bridge over the rapids and drive straight until you see the signs for Swinging Bridge on the left. The boulder will be on the left shortly after coming to brown park service sign found on the right. You'll see the 100ft Icehouse cliffs above the meadow below the Wawona Dome.
