obvious flat faced boulder on the left side of the trail. Many variations on this, try the traverse from left to right, if you get that now go back to the left side. If you want to top out a problem go up top and scope it out. Check the condition of the rock at the top, there will probably be some loose stuff up there.

Getting There 

Continue past Wild Iowa wall on the main trail maybe two minutes. You will see the boulder on your left.
