Home to an amazing classic v6 boulder problem using some awesome giant featured huecos and starting in a roof covered in black stuff. This boulder contains the most popular and the hardest known climbs in the area. The best down climb is jumping onto a low rock which may hurt your feet a bit, so a crashpad should be brought over for the down climb.

This boulder has on one side a low deep cave and then a tall steep side with diagnol cracks in it.

Getting There 

This boulder is kind of hidden from view due to a large rock formation seen from the trail. Best way to get to it is to go down the sandy slab going southwest so you can come up to the northside of the boulder.
