Directly beside and touching the Unicorn Roof which is to Shade Boulder's left.

Shade Boulder has fantastic features and tough climbing. The slightly overhung main face has jug rails below and a line of interesting pockets at the top (not much in-between). The face has excellent quality sandstone features. The right arête has some pebbly hate in between nice features and.

Getting There 

From the pull-off, walk down the trail to the fork. Take the left and it leads directly to Unicorn and Shade.
