Description 

The Quinn Boulder was named after Kasi Quinn who was an awesome park interpreter for GHSP. Kasi did the FA of Stand By me in 2010. The boulder is pretty tall and skinny, with a deep under-cut at its base. Stand By Me is a fun, easy-going problem, and Stand Alone is a claustrophobic, try not to dab low start in the short under-cut roof.

Getting There 

Walk past the overlook and down the trail to "The Room" where the quartzite striped Tigerside Boulder is found. If you stop and look directly at the Tigerside Boulder, to your left will be the tall, skinny, chunky Quinn Boulder.
