The actual boulder rests next to a pool of water, which unfortunately is not deep or big enough to swim in. Only one problem really exists on the boulder, but knock yourself out if you're psyched. The rock is decent, the moves good, and the view spectacular.

Getting There 

From the AC/DC boulder go right and down the hill passing another boulder/wall until you see a stream bed eroded in the rock and the boulder below. You can either jump down, down climb from the boulder/wall to the left - really easy 4th class, or hike around which adds maybe a minute. If the directions are confusing just check the Tucson bouldering guide. The boulder is in the comprehensive topo, though there are not any problems or descriptions about it. Approach time from AC/DC - 2 minutes.
