Description 

Quinn Boulder:

As you walk past the first, top lookout on the Listening Rock Loop Trail, continue up the stone steps and around to The Room, which is a cluster of stellar, overhanging boulders which together form a sheltered, dark room. the boulder on the far side has enticing "tiger stripes" of quartzite.
at the room, walk off the trail as if you are taking a shortcut to the road, but keep close to the boulders. you will very shortly come to a features, tall boulder, which cuts in sharply at its base to form a very low, sharp arete. there is a scary -deck out- boulder that has to be padded below it.
this is the "By-Stander Boulder"...

"Stand By Me" starts on the huge and obvious, round, loaf feature which is 5ft off the ground.

Stand start "Stand By Me" with one hand in the back of the massive jug slot formed behind the giant round loaf, and another hand on top of it. kick up a high foot and lurch up to a crimp and then a cool back-hand press off of another deep slot. work up to high through good hands to a phenomenal top out.
the landing is bad on this problem, so pad well...
