Shady and by the river. One of the better spots for climbing in the summer here. Not too popular of a boulder, but it's great rock.

Getting There 

Located south of the bike path. Continue down the trail from the Heroin Boulder and cross the bike path. The Papa Bells Boulder is the first boulder you come to.

I don't think the boulder you are referring to here is officially named... But there is a duplicate listing refering to it as "The My Special Purpose Boulder." Could an admin merge these please? Papa Bell's V1 boulder problem (and ostensibly what would be refered to as the Papa Bell's boulder) is located in a different area entirely- on the north face of the very first boulder found to the southwest of the Syringe ( not officially called the Heroin) kind of looks like a poor man's Prime Rib problem. This is approx 30 yards SW of the Syringe boulder, just off the trail to the left as you are beginning to head down hill- and not all the way down the hill and across the bike path right and metal pipe before where the River's Edge (Shivers) boulder is found.
