Another crack on Rest Area Boulder.

Description 

This is the huge boulder right by the highway a little ways down from the old rest area. The north side is visible from the highway and low angle, but the southwest face is overhanging and very sheer. There are two nice cracks on the west end (see pics).

Getting There 

This is between the Old Area and the Beehive Boulders. If coming for the rest area, shortly after the path runs parallel to a small long slab, turn left and head towards the highway.

Climbing Season

For the Dyke's Pond (Gloucester) area.

Pete,

This isn't the Highway Boulder, is it?
