This boulder has a number of great moderate and easy problems with a choice of climbing in and out of the sun. The easier problems are poised above the canyon giving them an high up feeling, whilst the others are mainly steep and short in a cooler cave.

Getting There 

From the Happy Boulder hike up the east rim trail to reach the rim. The boulder is easily seen just a little down on the left.
