That's the Shot Block Boulder in the background in...

Description 

Shot Block Boulder lies to the east and adjacent to the X5 Boulder. This is the large elongated boulder with the pointed top. The Shot Block Boulder sits ten yards off the main trail to the east and south of the X3 Boulder. While much of the Shot Block Boulder offers little challenge to the boulderer, the southern aspect does offer a nice lieback problem.

Getting There 

From the trail walk east past "The Fang" and scramble through the boulders to a slot or gulley that runs south along the east edge of the boulder. To the right lies a face containing a lieback.
