The name of the boulder is for lack of a better one. Let me know if you have another name.

There's a few ways to get here. You can enter the green cave and climb up and out of it. You can hike up around the green cave entrance and do a short climb up to it. Or you can hike up above Biscuit and the Bat Cave area and go straight up on top of the cave and walk around the left to the back side.
