Description 

This boulder is low, inverted, and has some chest scraping, forearm pumping, desperate sloper top outs. Its name comes from the mountain spring that flows from beneath the boulder when it rains heavily. This boulder sports moderate to difficult problems and even the V-2+ classic "Terrapin Top-Out" is a line to be reckoned with, handing out one of the trickiest top-outs in the line up.

Getting There 

Through the mountain rhododendron to the right of the Warm Up Boulder.
