The Sonic Youth boulder sits peacefully in the shade just off the trail when heading out to the large rock outcropping. It has two unique overhung problems that are difficult to protect with pads. The stone cleans up nicely and is very solid.

Getting There 

Walk past the porcelain wall. Once you approach The large boulders on the left side of the trail, the Sonic Youth boulder is just ahead. One problem faces the trail, the other sits behind the rock in front of it.
